We have a domain that we want to forward to a different domain (example dot com forward to newexample dot com). That works just fine, unless the user had a bookmark for or uses https. They are both registered with the same registrar if that matters.
The old domain was hosted at shopify, but that has been turned off. So now the domain doesn’t have a web server it actually points to. No place to install a SSL Cert.
I thought I could put both domains in Cloudflare and use a page redirect but that isn’t working either.
It seems like the domain registrar is still involved and since there is no SSL cert for example.com it doesn’t get past that stage and sent on to CLoudflare.
I tried to add a SSL cert at the registrar, but it asked for a CSR. No server hosting the site means no CSR, right?
Is there a way to get https exampl dot .com to forward to https newexample dotcom using cloudflare and the domain registrar (no webserver to handle the initial https request at example.com)?
