IIS 6.0 F1: Advanced Web Site Identification

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Use this dialog box to add additional Web site identities, or SSL identities to your computer.

A Web site identity consists of an IP address, TCP port, and an optional host header name, which associates a name with a single static IP address to host multiple sites. You add the host name to your name resolution system (typically DNS) so that when a request reaches the server, IIS uses the host name to determine which site the clients are requesting. This host name is passed in the HTTP header.

An SSL identity consists of an IP address and an SSL port number.

Multiple identities for this Web site

You can add, remove, or edit Web site identities for this Web site. A Web site identity consists of an IP address, TCP port, and an optional host header name. Each Web site must have a unique combination of identification characteristics. Therefore, while multiple Web sites can share two of their three identification characteristics, (IP address, TCP port, and host header name), they must have at least one characteristic that is different. Because SSL certificates contain the domain name in them, Web sites using certificates cannot share an IP address with other Web sites.

Multiple SSL identities for this Web site

You can add, remove, or edit SSL identities for this Web site. An SSL identity consists of an IP address and an SSL port number. An SSL identity is required only if SSL encryption is used. If SSL encryption is not enabled on your site, the Add, Remove, and Edit buttons are unavailable.

Add

Click to add an SSL identity for this Web site, which consists of an IP address and an SSL port number. The Advanced Web Site SSL Identification dialog box appears. The default port number for SSL is 443. If a port number, other than the default is used, your clients must know in advance to request that port number as part of the URL; otherwise their requests fail to connect properly to your server.

Remove

Click to remove the currently selected SSL identity from this Web site.

Edit

Click to edit the currently selected SSL identity for this Web site.
