Need to Change URL

My domain

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): Apache II

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): CentOS Linux release 7.9.2009
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: A2 Hosting

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

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): certbot 1.11.0

I need to move the certificate to

You don't "move" a certificate, you create a new one. Make a new cert for the desired domain name(s).


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

If this new name is on the same server, then you can just redo whatever you did with the previous name.
If it is on a new [and different] server, then you will need to begin at the beginning.


Technically it looks like you want a certificate for a different (new?) Domain name - Wikipedia.
A URL - Wikipedia is a reference to a web resource that specifies its location on a computer network and a mechanism for retrieving it.

These are 2 websites served from 2 providers: 3600 IN A

The .21 IP is registered to google. 3600 IN A

The .155 IP is registered to A2 Hosting

My advice:

  • Obtain an SSL Certificate for the domain you want to keep (via Certbot)
  • For the outgoing domain, you will want both a SSL certificate and a redirect for all traffic onto the new domain. The easiest 2 methods are:
    • Run the second domain on the same hosting provider, have certbot get the certificate, update the server with a rewrite rule.
    • Run the second domain on Cloudflare and install a global "Page Rule" (You get 3 on a free plan) to redirect all traffic to the new domain. Cloudflare will manage the SSL for you, and you can even transfer both Registrations to them and pay wholesale pricing.
