I've got a project which I need to now add SSL to, the entire website will run under HTTPS, can someone guide me to how to do this? i've never setup ssl before, is there a tutorial on how to setup SSL on .Net 4, IIS 7.5, along with using WCF, as I'm using
WCF WSHttpBinding currently to talk to my service, so i need to keep that there. this way all talk between website and service will be under https.

To setup SSL you need to have an SSL certificate from a certificate authority such as GoDaddy, or Verisign. Once you have completed all steps to get your certificate you need to install it on your server into the Certificate Authority. Then in IIS click
on the Server node and choose Certificate Manager, import your cert. On the Default website set SSL to be on. There is a lot of information for how to do this. Search Godaddy.com for installing SSL.

About how to setup SSL on IIS, microsoft has an specific artical and you can follow the below URL:
WCF client and service can also communicate under https and you can just modify wcf service url to start with "https://" in the Web.config.
<!-- specifies the endpoint to use when calling the service -->
<userPrincipalName value="firstname.lastname@example.org" />
