Certbot and web site with two domains and subdomains

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:www.rsvlelectrician.school

I ran this command:it was the sudo certbot for one web site

It produced this output: produced the 4 or 5 files I then moved to the conf folder in tomcat9

My web server is (include version):tomcat 9

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): ubuntu linux 20.04.3

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: aws

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):I use sudo

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): 0.40.0

So I have www.rsvlelectrician.school then rsvlelectrician.school then www.rsvlelectrician.com and then rsvlelectrician.com I need all for on ssl. I was able to setup the first with certbot. do I simply run certbot once for each? I tried once and failed on first without www. Anyway. I know I need to make an entry in server.xml for each.

Hi @caverdude, and welcome to the LE community forum :slight_smile:

Did you spell the name right?
*** can't find rsvlelectrician.school: Non-existent domain
*** can't find www.rsvlelectrician.school: Non-existent domain
*** can't find rsvlelectrician.com: Non-existent domain
*** can't find www.rsvlelectrician.com: Non-existent domain


My advice: When using Tomcat9, don't use certbot directly

And I hope the weather is good on your side of the state.


Doesn't seem those domains are registered (yet)? Or did you register them very recently by any chance?

Anyway, regarding your question:

Personally I try to put hostnames which serve the same site, even if their hostnames differ, into a single certificate. That goes especially, for me, for subdomains such as www. But a different TLD such as .com and .school for exactly the same "target" (i.e. "rsvlelectrician") can also go into the same cert if you'd ask me.
