Domain forwards to IP address without valid SSL
I have domain name example.com and I have properly setup DNS on my domain provider to point to DigitalOcean
Then I properly setup A and CNAME records on DigitalOcean for that domain. I setup A records to point to my IP address (droplet).
I have wordpress on this Ubuntu Droplet on latest version. I also properly changed my wordpress address and site address and replaced them from IP to my domain.
Then trough SSH I setup Lets Enctrypt SSL certificate for my domain example.com
All of that is double checked and properly setup.
However when I type in my domain example.com it redirects me to my IP e.g. 126.96.36.199 but with SSL certificate like this https://188.8.131.52 and here it asks me if I want to proceed to a website. If I accept, every next time I visit domain it shows domain without any problems, so it seems it redirects from IP without problems. On the other hand if I don’t accept to proceed from https://184.108.40.206 since its unsecure connection it wont redirect me to domain.
I also want to note that my domian have properly setup SSL certificate and it works without problems.
I cant get out of this problem no matter what I try.
Thanks for any help that you offer
