Is there any way to use CNAME flattening(root domain with CNAME) with SSL certificate?


#2

I have an orange-clouded flattened CNAME subdomain working with SSL. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work for the root domain. Is something not working?


#3

If I make it orange-clouded, is it cause problems receiving email?


#4

Only if your MX record points to it.


#5

Is this cause any problem?


#6

No, that will be fine pointing to zoho. You can leave the CNAME set to :orange:.


#7

No, that’ll work since it’s pointing to zoho.
