    Hi,

    A client has an ecommerce store on my server and using their control panel created a new CSR. The problem is that Cpanel defaults to the naked domain, domain.com not the www.domain.com, so therefore the SSL is basically useless for them.

    Is there a way, even via WHM, that I can force www to prefix the hostname when creating CSR's etc.

    Thanks

    Greg

    Most SSL providers today allow both non-www and www to work on a default SSL certificate purchased. Which SSL provider did they choose that didn't allow both www and non-www to function as trusted with the SSL generated?
