First let me say that I am NOT a server or scripting guru, so the following may be elementary to some readers!

I'm running a site on IIS6, Windows 2003. We recently enabled SSL on the site; the certificate is for the fully qualified domain name. However, users can still access the site using, eg:


Because the cert isn't applicable to the above URL, the user gets a certificate error. I'd like to redirect (or rewrite) the above URL to:

This URL will be recognized by the cert, and the user will retrieve the site's homepage without problem.

Is there a simple way to force both http URLs, plus the 'short' https URL above, to use the fully qualified domain name as listed for our site certificate?

Many, many thanks for any pointers anyone can provide!
