We are currently in the process to move the the HTTP protocol hosted Intranet websites to the secured HTTPS intranet protocol.
The current websites are accessible like: http://intranet.
Example domain, like : CORP.CONTOSO
Now, when we have deploy the SSL certificate, issues to *.CORP.CONTOSO, we are unable to access the website using
https://intranet. Can it be confirmed if we are required to use the website name as
https://intranet.corp.contoso ? This URL looks long and seems not appropriate to share with the users.
What are the options/alternatives to resolve the issue - Host the intranet websites on https?
Thanks for the help.

Yes. From my experience, you have to use the fully qualified name in the URL, as it needs to match the wildcard cert name. Remember to put the full site name into the binding's Host Name, when you select your wildcard cert.

Hi MSDN Geek,
You had mentioned that,"This URL looks long and seems not appropriate to share with the users."
Did you try to rewrite the URL and redirect user to appropriate page?
If not you can try to make a test with it to check whether it solves your issue or not.
