My domain is: wonder-comics.net
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Google Domains
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): No
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): Yes? Google Domains or Jcink Admin Control Panel.
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): No idea.
So, to preface this, I have the software and coding capacity of your average banana. I don’t really know what I’m doing, so please try to keep things as simple as you can, or I likely won’t have a clue what you’re saying. Sorry!
Long story short, I have a forum, which I made using Jcink.
I have a custom domain with Google Domains.
The issue is that the site comes up with a security error sometimes, due to not having an SSL certificate. As far as I can tell, this is because the SSL cert is for jcink, and not for my custom domain.
I’ve been reading as much into this as my peanut brain can handle, and from what I can figure out, jcink simply doesn’t support https for custom domains. I’ve tried looking into getting an SSL for the site via Let’s Ecrypt, but Google Domains doesn’t seem to have any support for it whatsoever, so I haven’t the faintest idea how to get that started.
