I have a GoDaddy domain name guavaberry.com, which has an A-record configured to an IP of hosting elsewhere. Basically, www.guavaberry.com "maps" to http://gb.site.je, which is exactly what it should do.
I have a wildcard SSL certificate for site.je and *.site.je. So https://gb.site.je is secured under that SSL certificate.
However, I expected https://guavaberry.com to be also "covered" under that same *.site.je SSL certificate. I have found that is not the case. The browser gives me a warning like this:
The server cannot prove that this is guavaberry.com. The server's security certificate comes from *.site.je. This is probably due to a wrong configuration of an attacker trying to hijack your connection
I understand the warning and I have requested a GoDaddy SSL certificate specifically for guavaberry.com. Browsing the admin panel, it seems it is active and installed. However, browsing to https://guavaberry.com still gives the same error.
How and what should I configure to have guavaberry.com serve the GoDaddy guavaberry.com SSL certificate and ignore the default *.site.je certicate that's installed on the target host...?
I'd appreciate any advice!
Thank you for posting. You would need a certificate that covers not only guavaberry.com but also site.je. The certificate would need to be installed to your server where the sites are stored and pointing to. A UCC SSL Certificate would be what you would need.
I'm having the same issue and am a little confused on the answer.
Are you saying I need to get a completely new SSL certificate on the server where the site is hosted? Or can I install the GoDaddy SSL certificate I purchased on the host server?
