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
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 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
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
Domain is added to my Cloudflare account, using Cloudflare nameservers and the magic happens
Thanks so much!
