I have a service that I have been running for a while but I notice that when I visit the service in a browser, it is reporting the name of the server that the site is being hosted on not the domain. Since the service is only accessed through SSL I feel this
might be why I am having connection issues with the service since the SSL cert is trying to validate my domain name not the box's name. Is there a way to get this to work in Server 2008 so that the domain not the computer name shows up?

For IIS hosted WCF services (over HTTP or HTTPS), you will need to configure the IIS web site's bindings (http or https specific ones) and specify a host header (as the full qualified domain name you want). Here are some former threads and web articles talking
