How to add SSL to an external domain



I have an external domain bought from another provider. I host my site on Godaddy and point the site to that external domain.


I've bought a SSL from Godaddy but still struggling to install it to my site because the auto process just shows the domains hosted with Godaddy. For the option Provide a certificate signing request (CSR), I don't how to get the CSR from Godaddy.


Could you please help me out of this problem 😞


Hi @tinle

Thanks for posting in our forums. If you have a standard SSL, it can only be used to secure your primary domain. If you want to secure your add on domain you will want to purchase a UCC SSL Certificate.
