I’m about 2 hours into signing up with netlify. I’m trying to serve static html files using Jekyll.
I’m using Cloudflare to manage my DNS records.
I have a subdomain I’d like to redirect toward netlify. I’ve modified the Cloudflare CNAME record to point to my netlify domain and changed the cloudflare settings to DNS Only.
I can verify the actual record is pointing to netlify in that I can navigate to the jekyll website through by browser. My only issue is during the redirect process I’m getting an SSL certificate error about name mismatch.
I’m experienced in setting up LE certs using dns challenge through ACME, however I don’t know how to enable netlify generate a certificate for me for this subdomain. I’d like to avoid uploading the cert/key manually since the certs need to be renewed every 90 days.
How do configure netlify to generate an SSL certificate for my subdomain. Going through the DNS setup, I don’t see a method how to do this working specifically with subdomains. Honestly I’m not really wanting to change my DNS provider from CF to netlify
