I have one confusion... I have created one site using SSL on Port 5556. Now it is on Default Zone & working fine on local network using https://zyspnlb:5556/vip/...

Now, Team wants to make that available on internet. They are fine to use the site with port. So, instead of extend the site can I update the Host Header on IIS for that site with Live URL ?

I mean in IIS Basic Setting we have port, http/https & host header setting. if I keep 5556 port as it is, https as it is and in blank of host header if I write (which is live url) will it work externally using

also I want to make that work on internal as it is with https://zyspnlb:5556/vip/...
