Hi! I have some problems with the SSL. I’m trying to connect to my website via:
www.xx.xx.com and I receive this error:
If I go without the “www” it works fine. I know that this SSL doesn’t support
x.x.domain.com, but there’s something that I can do on Cloudflare?
Edit: I saw now, some pages will auto-redirect with www and it’s frustrating because I can’t acces the subdomain.
You may need to use Advanced Certificate Manager (ACM) to resolve your issue as follows:
More about it here:

This tutorial post covers the first steps you should take if SSL is working on your main domain, but not on a subdomain.
1. Is there a DNS record for it?
Check the DNS app in your Cloudflare dashboard to see if there is a DNS record there for that subdomain.
2. Check that the DNS record is working correctly
You can use a tool such as
https://dnschecker.org, enter the subdomain.domain.com …
This tutorial covers a possible reason for the SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP and ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH errors (Firefox and Chrome respectively) when seen on a subdomain.
The Cloudflare universal certificates cover example.com and *.example.com. This means that it covers any subdomain one level below the domain you signed up with.
It will cover www.example.com and subdomain.example.com, as these are one level below the root domain, example.com.
The certificate will not cover www.sub…
I bought ACM. One more question. Is there any way to introduce “*” for
xx.subdomain.domain.com? or I have to introduce them manually?
You can wildcard the first part of a hostname in a certificate, so
*.subdomain.domain.com would work.
But for DNS, only an Enterprise Plan can
Proxy a wildcard DNS entry.
Thank you! My expression was wrong. I wanted to say if I can write something like this * . *.domain.com
I mean, without www.subdomain. for each subdomain
Sorry, but you can’t double-wildcard DNS or Certificates.
Ok, thank you! Merry Christmas!
