Positive ssl + change domain?

(Tumi) #1

Hello guys

I got a possitive SSL . What if i want to change the domain for my fresh instance ? I will lose my cert ? Can i use this cert for new domain?

Or mby will be better to do only forwarding for new domain? But the https adres will work or not ? Should i then buy new ssl cert for direct domain witch i want to use??

An SSL certificate is only good for the hostnames against which it is issued.

If you change the hostname of your forum, you’ll need a new certificate for the new one.

We use Let’s Encrypt for our SSL certificates so we don’t have to worry about that.
