Setting Up SSL Cert for domain that redirects (without hosting)

Can an SSL Certificate be set up for a domain (D1) that is not hosted on a server, and is simply a redirect to another domain (D2) which is a secure URL

Sounds like a case for an SSL for SaaS at first :thinking:

However, from what I understand and using, yes it is possible.

I have DNS for my domain name exampleA.com at Cloudflare. Therefrom, A www and A exampleA.com both DNS records are :orange: and proxied and pointed to some temporary IP address like 192.0.2.1.

Using Page Rules, I simply forward it to my other domain name domainB.com.

In other words, domainA doesn’t have hosting, neither e-mail, neither an SSL certificate, but when a user enters https:// in their Web browser, it does the job and works fine :slight_smile:

Domain is added to my Cloudflare account, using Cloudflare nameservers and the magic happens :wink:
