SNI SSL Problem w/IE 11

Discussion in 'General troubleshooting' started by Brad, Oct 21, 2014.

  1. When I try to access my site using https, I get this warning from IE 11:

    There is a problem with this website’s security certificate.

    The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.

    Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.

    We recommend that you close this webpage and do not continue to this website. ​

    What do I need to do to alleviate this error?

  4. Sorry for the confusion, but I thought the SNI would eliminate the need for a purchased SSL if you didn't need a static IP. Would you please clarify what the shared certificate is for?

    No. SNI basically allow you to bind a certificate to a shared IP address.

    We have a shared certificate installed using * domain.

    Certificate now are fairly cheap nowaday. If you get one, you should use as the common name, this will cover as well.

  6. Ok thank you Frank for the clarification. I'll get a certificate.
