Newby needs help to get a certificate for redirecting

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: - redirection to

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Web-Service4U

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

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):

I can see your website and there is no redirection, just a website hosted on ip – that is different from the jimdo site you linked, which has a valid certificate from digicert (a wildcard for all subdomains)

You need to discover how to install a certificate on your website (you currently have a self-signed, expired one).

Does your web hosting provider have any documentation about that?

Hi 9peppe,

thanks for your quick response.
As I wrote, I’m a newby to this and thought the jimdo-site would
be missing a cert.
Yes there is some handbook to be found on this link:

There is another link with some explanations:

  But it is in German (my language). Although in German I have some

problems to understand it. I am new at this provider and have to
learn a lot.

I hope to get some help from you. Thanks in advance

Regards Helmut

You should probably check if you can add the domain to jimdo directly.

I suspect that’s not available on their free plans, though.

Yes, we checked it and we can’t add our domain directly unless we buy a more costly version there.
on the support pages at web-service4U they discribe how to get a cert via LiveConfig. Yet another site I’m not familiar with.
I thougt I could get a cert on an easy way. The reason for changing was, that I am up to my neck with dates in my calendar and wanted to let someanoe else take over. I got 72 last month.
So there is still some hope on my side. :wink:
