    I had this question too:

    On a server #1 i had this cname: https:// example.cr.org.mx/ that points to https:// exampletoo.net/ Server #2

    https:// exampletoo.net/ is secured by autossl

    How can i add ssl feature to the cname on server 1?

    P.D. I used a space after https because the forum convert urls to website name.

    HI @samuelmf

    Strictly speaking autoSSL can't renew a domain that isn't added to the account, or more so isn't at least an alias. If the domain exists only as a CNAME it wouldn't be included in the SSL.

    Hi @samuelmf

    You can manually install a certificate paid or otherwise from WHM>>SSL/TLS>>Install an SSL certificate on a domain.

    Thanks!
