Question

Site isn't available at https://www.mysite.com

I’ve set up the @ A name to my ip, and a www cname pointed to @. This all works, and I can use my console to ping the correct domains, but once I use https://www.mysite.com, it stops responding (though https://mysite.com works just fine).

Are there any special conditions I have to set up for https?
