SSL Certificates on subdomains
mt50f1 said 1 year, 3 months ago:
I have an SSL certificate installed on my primary domain (not hosted at GoDaddy) and I have a sub-domain that resides on another server on my network. Can I use the primary domain SSL certificate or do I need to purchase another certificate for the sub-domain? If I need to purchase another one, how do I indicate it as a sub-domain as it will only list my existing domains under management (and not the sub-domains)?

SSL certificates only secure the exact name they were issued for. If you have a subdomain that you would like to secure, you would need to purchase an additional certificate to secure that specific common name. The exact common name you would like to secure should be specified in the CSR that you submit for the new certificate.

Dear Gary A,
I have purchased an SSL certificate from godaddy but I couldn’t manage it. I want to use this SSL to my subdomain. There was no any direction to install it to any subdomain. It has been installed suddenly.

Did you get everything sorted out with this? If not, please provide your domain name so we can look into this for you.

I have a SSL Certificate on a sub-domain, but really want it on my primary domain. How can I switch this so that my certificate is on my primary domain without buying another SSL Certificate?

Unfortunately, you’re not able to change the common name on a certificate. You would need to revoke the current certificate and purchase one for the subdomain.
Let us know if there is anything we can help with!

I have an ecommerce website and we are running scripts and images for performance purposes from two subdomains called run and images.
We had purchased a Standard SSL for the website and we are having problems validating these sub domains. How can we go about this??
Tomorrow we will need about 3-4 more sub-domains for certain other specifics so what is the most practical and feasible solution?
