Changing the URLs in MS CRM 2011

suppose we have installed MS CRM 2011 and latter we got it to be https or any chance we have to change the URL.
then below are the places we must do to make all things work properly.
1. make sure you bind properly in IIS
2. change the URLs(web addresses) in the deployment manager properties (if you have https, select
HTTPs) as below


3. change the ServerURL in Regedit as below
 
4. the last one most people used to forget is the help URL :P
this do in the sql query, better take a DB back up, if you do anything wrong unknowingly
 
change the "HelpServerURL" from ConfigSetting in MSCRM_Config database.
 
hope this will help someone...
