SSL host Headers allow you to bind one certificate to multiple websites running on a single IP. But the certificate has to be a wildcard SSL.

To do this please follow these steps:

* Go to IIS and click on the first site
* Click on the bindings and add the 443 binding to it with the installed certificate
* Once the certificate is installed on the site and its running use these steps to configure this on the rest of the sites
i) Open CMD
ii) Go to C:WindowsSystem32Inetsrv by typing cd C:WindowsSystem32Inetsrv
iii) In 'Inetsrv' folder you are currently in, run the following command:

appcmd set site /site.name:"" /+bindings.[protocol='https',bindingInformation='*:443:'

 and the  should be replaced with the site name

e.g;
appcmd set site /site.name:"domain.mydomain.com" /+bindings.[protocol='https',bindingInformation='*:443:domain.mydomain.com'

IV) All done and now you should be able to hot the site on https.
