Switching SSL from Primary to Pointer

Discussion in 'Domain names / DNS' started by Rolfolingus, Apr 28, 2012.

  1. Currently I have an SSL certificate on my primary domain, abc.com. I recently set up a domain pointer for efg.com.

    Can I remove the SSL certificate for abc.com and set up an SSL certificate for the pointer (efg.com) or will that cause issues? I know that means any attempt at using https for abc.com afterward will return a certificate error, but will https requests to efg.com work correctly or does the certificate need to be for the primary domain?

    Thank You

    The certificate does not need to be the primary domain. However,you can only have 1 certificate per site. If you want to use HTTPS with the pointer, you'll have to uninstall the cert first and reinstall a new certificate.
