    Hello Team, 

    we have windows server 2012 r2, running IIS 8. we were using www.xxx.xxx.org four years ago, but after the new implementation the website changed it to www.yyy.yyy.org but both websites working just fine. Old users are using the old website to login and new users are using new/old. so its kind of mix environment. It both give them the exact same page. What can I do so that everyone will only go to www.yyy.yyy.org?

    we are paying for both websites SSL cert, by doing this we can cut down the cost too.

    EX: www.xxx.xxx.org  and www.yyy.yyy.org

    You can use URL Rewrite module to redirect all users from old URLs to new ones. However, you cannot prevent them from visiting the old URLs (if they saved bookmarks and so on).

    If you do want to cut cost, you have to stop support the old site and explicitly break those users. Is Let's Encrypt an option for you? They provide free certificates.
