    Today i bought new certificate using "Market provider manager" for a client and everything ok.

    Then i tried to buy a new one for my hostname, but i cant because it isnt a subdomain from mais domain and i cant create as subdomain.

    Have some trick to do this?

    Thanks

    If you purchased single domain SSL certificate for your root domain, then you need to purchase another certificate to secure your single subdomain.

    You want to purchase a new certificate for a subdomain, need to issue a certificate for your desired subdomain. For example – subname.domain.com

    In this case, you need to manage two certificates like renewal, CSR, private keys, installation, expiry etc.

    Wildcard SSL certificate is an ideal solution for the protection of unlimited sub domains over the site. When you order a wildcard certificate, ensure that the certificate request for *.domain.com.
