getting SSL to work for www also

I manually uploaded an SSL cert from another host because I am migrating.

my domain is added as mysite.co.uk

I installed the ssl and it says it works but the SSL also work for www.mysite.co.uk

How do I get the cert to work with both the domain mysite.co.uk and www.mysite.co.uk:

 

The SSL certificate also supports this domain, but this domain does not refer to the SSL website mentioned above:

If you've followed the instructions for Manually install an SSL certificate on my cPanel hosting @qqwertyjjj then I really couldn't identify what the issue was? I can say that if your uploaded files contained both the base domain and the WWW then you should be working?

 

The reason I asked what SSL certificate was because not all certificates are create equal. There could be some limitations for your certificate of perhaps a specific path to a resolution?

 

...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.

Typically when you generate your certificate there is an option to add the www to your protection @qwertyjjj. I don't know where you generated your SSL from but go back and see if there is an option?

The cert has the protection. It is godaddy that is not recognizing it when O upload it as per the error message:

That sounds strange @qwertyjjj are you saying that you can't upload the files? What third party SSL are you using?

No. The files are uploaded and work. But GoDaddy only recognises one of the domains. It didn't recognise the www even though it says it sees it in the certificate. So how do I set it up for www?
