I have been in the IT industry since 1995. I've had my hand in a variety of technologies as a developer, infrastructure specialist, and systems architect. Some of these include (but are not limited to):

  • IIS, Apache
  • SharePoint (2003, 2007, and 2010)
  • SQL Server
  • ColdFusion, Classic ASP, PHP
  • F5 Load Balancers
  • PowerShell
  • Visual Basic
  • ASP.Net (C#)
  • Mainframe technologies (COBOL, DB2, CICS) ...trying to forget these

I could go on...

I do not declare myself to be an authoritative expert on any of these and I don't carry any fancy certifications. I like finding ways to use technology to solve problems. Over the years I have used much from the open community. I am participating on the StackExchange sites as a way to give back to the community and to share many aspects of things I have learned over the years.

comment Using SSL Certification in Multiple Locations
Can you please clarify something? It sounds like your website is hosted on a server in the UK with the URL 'www.companyname.com'. Is the application hosted by the company in South Africa also running under the 'www.companyname.com' or is it running under a different hostname such as 'myapp.companyname.com' or 'www.mycompanyapp.com'?

I have tested your rule and it works as expected (although I didn't have WordPress installed). I did see a similar issue to what you describe where it appears that it does not redirect to the correct domain. In that test, I was using IE. As soon as I cleared my browsing history in the browser, it redirected as expected. You might want to make sure you delete any browser history and temporary internet files and see if that clears it up.

Can you post the revised rule you are using? Is this rule being applied to your entire webserver or to just a specific website? It is possible there might be a rule conflict.

comment Using other's contents in your website
@Nick: This is a well stated answer. Agree that if the content isn't your original work, assume it cannot be used unless granted permission. Many websites will post a copyright notice somewhere on their site. That copyright notice will often spell out the legal terms for reuse or syndication of content from that site.
