Setting Host Headers for SSL Sites in IIS–Week 7 of 52

At first glance, the Host Header field is grayed out when applying host headers to SSL (HTTPS) sites in IIS 7.

This week I cover a trick plus a full featured way to set these host headers in IIS 7.0/7.5 and IIS 6.  If you haven’t watched last week’s video, I recommend watching it first since it covers the reasons and issues for host headers on SSL sites.

This is week 7 of a 52 week series on various web administration related tasks.  Past and future videos can be found here.
