I need to setup different themes with different URLu2019s using the same database the questions is

Do I need to get a SSL for each URL? If I do can I setup different themes using sub URLu2019s?

If I am going to have 10 sites I do not want to purchase 10 SSL if I can!!

Thank you

Hi Shawn

You certainly can but each domain will need its own SSL certificate, as SSL is used to prove the identity displayed on the site has been verified.

Sometimes you can get a "supercert" that can be used on mulitple domains but each SSL cert request will be unique to the FQDN(fully qualified domain name) of the website its intended for.

Each SSL or nonSSL URL can then be tied to a single theme, theme is tied to a catalog, all stored in one Web tools database.

Hi Bryce,

to clarify. If we have one URL (i.e.lpgstore.com) and we set up sub URLs (i.e. www.kent.lpgstore.com) and we purchase a Supercert SSL, we are only able to have (1) catalog, therefore, (1) theme. Correct?

It depends on the SSL cert you get, some of them work with tertiary domains and some do not.

You can have multiple themes using the same catalog each with their own associated domain

I had the same situation recently and since you can't assign 2 different SSL certificates to the same website in IIS (unless you had that super certificate that Bryce mentioned) the way I handled it was to create a new web in IIS manually for the new site and have it point to the WebTools folder (make sure it's still a dot net 2.0 web with the appropriate permissions) and then assign the ssl certificate to that website.

I'm not sure if this is the "approved" way to handle it but it seems to work.
