How do I get a free SSL certificate for a domain alias?

The short answer is that we don't support SSL certificates for aliases.  However, you can still totally get this done.  Here's how:

  1. If you already set up your alias domain in another web site, remove it.
  2. Create a new web site via the using the domain that you were going to set up as an alias.
  3. Edit the document root of the new web site so that it points back to the orginal web site.
  4. Done!
  5. Wait about 10 minutes and your alias domain will receive an SSL certificate but will show the content of your original web site.
