Problem of sub sub domains with https

Hello

I have recently installed SSL certificate for one of sites. It is domain specific certificate (non wild card).

Problem is there are links being generated such as https://www.www.mydomain.com by someone intentionally or someother reason which I can not figure out at this time.

Major problem is such domains are causing a browser warning for which subscribers are complaining.

What I have tested till now is to apply .htaccess redirections which are not working as SSL certificate is issued before processing .htaccess

In one of your site posts I have read that even mod_ssl redirects are also processed after issuing the SSL certificate.

Can you please help me finding a solution for this problem?

Thanks in advance

If you know which sub domains are being attempted, you could create a new multi domain certificate that includes them. Will be free through Let's Encrypt.
