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?

  • Sorry I was just using mysite as a placeholder for my actual domain, didn't literally mean "mysite.com"

    • Okay, are you going to share the actual domain with us so we can troubleshoot?

What kind of web-server are you using? Nginx or Apache? Have you setup your webserver to support SSL/TLS connections? What kind of error do you get when you try to connect? 503 error?

  • I'm using node.js on ubuntu 14.04, my site is jordanbourne.com if you want to try for yourself. It loads fine without any prefixes, but with any prefix, the request just times out. I have all my A and CNames set up as the guide on here suggests, so could it possibly be an error with my node.js routing itself?
