2. In my case I am using below URL’s
meet.mytricks.in    ->simple URL
dialin.mytricks.in    ->simple URL
lyncweb.mytricks.in  -> External Web Services URL
3. After your Godaddy SSL certificate is issued, download your certificate and intermediate certificate files. 
4. To Install SSL certificate on Microsoft IIS, From the Start menu, click Run
