I am trying to purchase an SSL certificate for one of our webservers. The webserver is hosted in school and I have had the gfl people open up the relevant ports and assign a public IP. The site works fine but I want to secure it.
I have tried to buy an SSL from 123reg and put in "school.borough.sch.uk" as my domain. The site is found at "webserver.school.borough.sch.uk". When I say my domain is school.borough.sch.uk it gets thrown out as invalid.
what should I be putting as my domain? Is the School a sub-domain of the borough? Is that why I cant buy the certificate?
I have never bought an SSL cert for an sch.uk domain before and its very confusing!!
