SSL Cert for subdomain

Domain name: rajaganesan.me
I have domain registered elsewhere but the DNS management is handled in Netlify. The automatic SSL cert works for the root domain. However, I have created a subdomain blog.rajaganesan.me. It is accessible from non-ssl port 80 but the SSL cert is not working.

Hi @zeagord,

As mentioned in the docs:

this is not possible.


For all certificate service types, Netlify enables HTTPS for only Netlify-hosted content. If you use Netlify to host content on an apex domain and other hosts for content on subdomains, Netlify cannot enable HTTPS for the subdomains with externally-hosted content.

I understand. Thanks for the quick support
