We're migrating our customer's MOSS2007 site to SharePoint 2010 (on new hardware). The client wishes to continue using the same URL to make the upgrade as transparent as possible to the end users. However, we need to enable SSL.
The problem is getting SSL to work with their current URL as it's a single level URL, something like -- 'http://ourwebserver/'
I need to register a public cert with Thawte, but I'm told it's only possible to register an FQDN URL with Thawte.
Is it possible to get this working? The only thing I can think of in my limited knowledge of SharePoint is to register the companies FQDN on the cert, i.e. 'http://ourwebserver.abc.efg.sg' and then create some AAM in SharePoint so that that the users can still access via 'http://ourwebserver' securely.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
