    Hi guys, excuse me if i'm asking basking questions.,

    I've purchased a Wilcard SSL certificate and am using it on my domain ex. "website.com". Then created a subdomain through cpanel ex. "sub.website.com" and cpanel automatically creates a direcotry public_html/sub

    So now, I have a main domain: website.com, and a subdomain: sub.website.com

    website.com has the IP of 111.111.111.111, and I want the sub.website.com to point to a different IP and server that is located accross the globe: ex. 222.222.222.222, so I then changed it in the zone editor to point it to 222.222.222.222.

    And now,
    • website.com's IP is 111.111.111.111,
    • sub.website.com's IP is 222.222.222.222

    I installed the Wildcard SSL certificate for sub.website.com through Cpanel's TLS/SSL, but it doesnt work for the sub.website.com. The browser says that it's not secure when connecting to sub.website.com through https (it says it uses a self-signed certificate), but works with http.

    Can anybody help what I'm doing wrong?

    Hello @Jon Aisi,

    SSL certificates are installed on a single IP address. Using the same SSL certificate on multiple IP addresses isn't supported, nor is the use of multiple IP addresses on a single cPanel account.

    If you want to point a specific subdomain to another server, then you'd delete it as a subdomain in cPanel and instead simply create the "A" record for it using cPanel >> Zone Editor. It's SSL certificate should then be installed on the server that's hosting it's website contents.

    Thank you.
