    I have a small problem and im not sure how to address this.

    We recently installed an SSL cert on one of our subdomain. it works great.
    however i notice if hit https://www.anotherclientswebsite.com it will auto redirect to the subdomain that we installed the ssl cert on. This could pose some problems for resellers and things like that.

    How do I stop it from redirecting to the https site that actually runs the Cert?



    Best Wishes,
    Mike

    You should have installed a Server Certificate, having it installed on your servername.domain.com . Then your clients/resellers could call it as https://servername.domain.com/~username/filename.shtml

    Im sorry Host4u2 if I did not clearly address my problem.

    But if thats all you were going to post about the issue then I suggest you take your sarcasm else where.

    all I would like to know is how can I make it so that if some body enters https://www.customer-website.com it will direct to page can't be displayed or something else rather than redirecting them to my subdomain where the actual cert is installed.

    There was NO sarcasm, The Duh was aimed at me for not reading carefully what you had well enough explained in the first place. The not-so-smiley face is an "embarrassment" (blushing) face.

    I think you are as guilty for misreading as I was, in any case, don't take your frustration out on those who take the time to try to help you.

    I simply never heard of installing a SSL Cert on a sub-domain.

    If there is trouble, it will find me
    The problem is that every SSL cert needs a dedicated IP address. If you don't give the account its own IP address, you will not be able to give more than one SSL cert, and not only that, but every time someone else on the same IP types https in front of their domain they will get someone else's webpage.
