Changing main domain to a sub domain for ssl (1 post)

    The domain for my website has changed to a subdomain as this was the only way to set up the SSL with my hosting company. For example the site was example.com and is now https://secure.example.com Kind of like it like this as it makes it clear to the user that it is a secure site.

    Should I submit a new site map under a new domain named https://secure.example.com? Or will the Google bots understand what has happened.

    Will this take away the power of external links we had pointing to a example.com domain? Any url request is re-directed to https://secure.example.com so the links still work okay.
