Site showing SSL after hitting refresh


I installed letsencrypt SSL successfully in my domain. Its hosted by Godaddy.

And used this code in .htaccess file to force redirect.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

The site is loading fine (without loading small icons). But its showing no SSL is installed (as Chrome shows ‘Not Secure’ sign). Once I refresh the page then the secure sign is showing. I have checked in multiple browsers this problem is persistent.

This is my url. Please check


Hi @mrb1129

my tool doesn’t see an error ( ):

Domainname Http-Status redirect Sec. G 200 0.836 H 200 0.850 H 200 4.264 B 200 3.827 B 404 0.413 A
Not Found 404 0.356 A
Not Found

Your certificate is valide:
expires in 90 days, - 2 entries

both domain names are included, both https versions are secure.

PS: The Chrome console shows some errors you should fix:

Access to font at 
from origin '' has been blocked by CORS policy: 
No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource.

Chrome: Ctrl + Shift + I


And also recently I have changed my site from a sub-domain to the root domain. I did the redirect through CPanel redirect option.

It was forums.seomotionz and now it should directly move to

So now when I putting directly this its showing error

you can check. How to fix it?


You can use the tool online

There is the wrong certificate:

CN=*, OU=Domain Control Validated
expires in 68 days	*, - 2 entries

Is this your hoster or another domain?

The result: The connection is insecure.

Domainname Http-Status redirect Sec. G 301 0.383 D 200 0.950 H 200 6.800 N
Certificate error: RemoteCertificateNameMismatch 404 0.393 A
Not Found

PS: So create one certificate with as domain name and use that.

You use cPanel, so use this integrated solution. I don’t see why the subdomain has this other certificate.


Its a sub-domain where my site was previously I moved it to the root domain recently so I created a redirect through cPanel.

Should I create a redirect from to

Will it fix it?



First the browser opens a SSL-connection, then he can get the http status 301 -> “Go there”.

So a valide certificate is required before the browser sees the redirect information.


So what should I do?


Create a certificate with that domain name and use that. cPanel is a “closed world”, so you have to use the options there.


Okay Sir, I will look into it.

Now, as I originally asked about ‘hitting the refresh’ to see the SSL. Are you sure that its not an issue?


“hitting refresh” and seeing new content means your system had cached it from a previous state.
Not having ever been there, my system doesn’t require “hitting refresh” - and doing so doesn’t change the content (for me).
Nor do I ever see any “security” problem with the site.


Okay, then what’s the solution for it?


A cache phenomen isn’t a real problem.

Check the real answers (not the cached), if there are errors, fix these.


Okay, got it. Thanks for the reply, Sir.
