Solve The Problem “What means ERR_SSL_UNRECOGNIZED_NAME_ALERT?”

Hey hey!

Welcome to our “Solve The Problem” blog edition #1. If you have encountered this error before, then you are in the right place!

ERR_SSL_UNRECOGNIZED_NAME_ALERT isn’t that scary as it sounds, so don’t be alarmed. We are here to help you no matter what.

This error shows up when your domain does not have the SSL certificate installed. To fix it, you need to install a SSL certificate from our cloud panel. You are able to install a 100% free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate with only 2 clicks.

How to install SSL to my domain?

Installing a SSL certificate is very easy. All you need to do is be in your domain group and click on "Actions" and then "Add SSL Certificate" in the SSL certificate section. There you can install Let's Encrypt (free SSL certificate) or a custom SSL certificate.

If you wish to install a custom SSL certificate, you can generate a CSR if you don't have one already. If you install an SSL certificate when your domain's health is in the "Attention" or "Error" state, then SSL will not be installed before your domain's health turns to "Healthy."

If your domain's status is not "Healthy," click on the status to see what's wrong. Your root domain and www subdomain must point to the IP address where you assigned your root domain.

Also, make sure your domain doesn't have AAAA (IPv6) record set up for your domain. Let's Encrypt will use the AAAA instead, and the certificate installation may fail.
