SSL Certificate not working for non-www domain



I am using Nginx
I have generate a wildcard ssl certificate ie *
bu using this command
./certbot-auto certonly --server --manual --preferred-challenges dns -d *

But this certificate is only working for and doesn’t working for

so is there any way to use this certificate for both www & non-www.

Please let me know how to fix this

Similar command to what you used before:

./certbot-auto certonly --server --manual --preferred-challenges dns -d -d "*"
