We was already having an application with hosted with default http protocol. I have created a self signed certificate and hosted site with https . While browsing the site internally through in the server where site is hosted there by hitting
https://testsiteabc.com in IE the site gets displayed properly. But While Accesing from outside from the server the its not getting displayed. is that something related Port 443 ? Please let me know how would it be achievable?.

you'll more than likely need to add the cert to all prospective client systems as a trusted cert
self signed certs have no central body to validate against and therefore because the issuer isn't a standard CA the cert cannot be validated when visiting from clients, this is why purchasing a cert when doing a general release is best - some certs can be
gotten for 1-2 years for under $50 if you are needing to release this site to the general public.

How did you get the domain name solution work for this test machine itself? If via hosts file, then on other machines, you also need to modify hosts files to point to the IP address of the IIS machine. Meanwhile, port 443 must be opened on the IIS machine's
