The SSL issue is Subdomain too deep. As for the record message, you don’t seem to have such a record yet, so you should be able to add it.

I tried to add it, but it doesn’t work. Is it because there is a www record for the main domain?

Can you post a screenshot of the error message as well as the form where you configure the record?

Also, which nameservers were you assigned?


You are trying to add www here and that certainly already exists. You need to add www.hub.

Oh, I almost did that!

Also, I should mention I’m using the SSL settings in cPanel of inMotion hosting. The other subdomains work with SSL, but not this one.

For example:

You’ll need a certificate for that hostname on your server as well, plus an ACM certificate from Cloudflare.

I will look into that.

Sure, should there be any issue with getting a new certificate issued for that hostname, check out Origin certificates.

They are only valid in a proxied context but are rather easy to get issued.
