    AutoSSL doesn't pick up my hostname on my second server. That hostname has a valid and pingable A record and the reverse is valid. The hostname however does not have a corresponding subdomain nor an account as cPanel does not allow that. I could self sign a certificate in WHM and install it on it. It appears in SSL/TLS » Manage SSL Hosts but running the check does not list it at all. It lists all subdomains of my main domain name, but not my hostname. Is there anything I'm supposed to do in order for AutoSSL to discover my hostname and install a cert for it?
