New SSL cert does not show when opening the web page.

I received a newly issue SSL cert from GoDaddy and I am importing it into my IIS server, but when I go to the site the old one is still linked.  I have confirmed that the new cert is bounded to the site via IIS manager. I restarted the IIS stack via IISRESET as well as restart within IIS manager.

Any reason why I am still seeing the old cert when I open the page?

Thank you in advanced.

Yep.  That is why it's so strange.  

It's a wildcard cert.  

The only thing I did not do is reboot the server. 

" NOTE: In some cases the changes may not take place after restarting IIS Services and a re-boot is needed."

There are many possibilities.

Better to test + know, than guess.

Provide your actual URL for testing.

I did test from multiple computers and the the clients still show the cert that is about to expire.
