Creates an SSL binding for a website.

Syntax

New-WebSitesSslBinding
   [-ConnectionString <String>]
   [-WhatIf]
   [-Confirm]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The New-WebSitesSslBinding cmdlet creates a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) binding. SSL provides a way for browsers to communicate with web servers over a secure, encrypted channel; this is done by using SSL certificates. An SSL binding associates an SSL certificate with entities such as a website or TCP/IP port.

Examples

Example 1: Bind a certificate

PS C:\> New-WebSitesSslBinding -FrontEndName "FESERVER01" -IPAddress "FD4A:29CD:184F:3A2C:D07A:489A:1EC4:E2CD" -Port 8443 -HostName "Site01.Contoso.com"

This command binds a certificate for the host name Site01.Contoso.com to the IP address FD4A:29CD:184F:3A2C:D07A:489A:1EC4:E2CD and port 8443 found on the front end server named FESERVER01.
