    hi guys,

    i have a main website with SSL(just purchased)- it works fine, i have a green lock icon. everything is great.

    and i have a park domain which is getting forwarded to my main website. but i get this message


    main website is made with Wordpress. htaccess file is rewritable.

    is there anyway for my park domain to work properly?

    Hi,

    You cannot install SSL on Parked domain because that actually acts as an alias to the main domain where it shares the document root together, so no separate SSL can be installed on it.. However, if you wish to have SSL on it, remove the domain as parked and add it as an addon domain.. You can later on put the website forwarding..

    Hello,

    The previous post is correct. However, note that if your hosting provider is using the AutoSSL feature and it's enabled on your account, then certificates for aliases (parked domains) should be trusted by your web browser.

    Thank you.
