My hosting provider, if applicable, is: self hosted

I’m having a bit of trouble getting the certificate for the www prefix for my domains. I have successfully obtained certificates for mlcnfriends.com and boredguy.showersnet.com. When I add the www prefix to either URL it fails. I have a redirect to https set up on both domains with SSL termination handled by an nginx proxy. The certificate renewall process also works from cron for both domains. I have the A record set up at namecheap for www for both domains and it does resolve correctly so I’m stumped as to why it won’t work. Any help you can provide would be great. Thanks for your time.
