Common name in certificate different from subdomain

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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

And checked for

It produced this output: resolves to

Server Type: nginx/1.10.2

The certificate should be trusted by all major web browsers (all the correct intermediate certificates are installed).

The certificate will expire in 8 days. Remind me

None of the common names in the certificate match the name that was entered ( You may receive an error when accessing this site in a web browser. [Learn more about name mismatch errors]

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):
Not sure

The common name on the issued certificate is “”. This is not the same as my subdomain

Can any kind expert here help me, please.

The whole cert process should be handled in cPanel.
Have you verified those settings and/or spoken with your hosting provider?

I see four IPs:

May i know how do you find that?

The phrase " resolves to" is from the results at

Try either:

May i know how to change that, please?

Or how to resolve the current wrong “common name”?

Change what exactly?

You may need to speak with your hosting provider about that; But it should most likely be handled in cPanel.

Hi @dreamzspl

sslshopper has an incomplete test, there you see nothing.

You have ( )

Host T IP-Address is auth. ∑ Queries ∑ Timeout C yes 1 0
A yes
A yes
A yes
A yes Name Error yes 1 0

one CNAME and 4 ipv4 addresses.

But every https - connection uses the wrong certificate:

Domainname Http-Status redirect Sec. G 200 0.290 H 200 0.600 H 200 0.214 H 200 0.554 H 200 2.760 N
Certificate error: RemoteCertificateNameMismatch 200 5.264 N
Certificate error: RemoteCertificateNameMismatch 200 2.187 N
Certificate error: RemoteCertificateNameMismatch 200 4.063 N
Certificate error: RemoteCertificateNameMismatch

It's the certificate of the CNAME entry:
	31.01.2019 - 1 entry

Why is there a CNAME to another domain, if the other domain hasn't a correct certificate?

Or the owner of doesn't know you want to use https.
