Notes

  • Domain authentication type SSL.
  • An SSL certificate will not be issued for the domain before the nameserver change.
  • It may take longer than usual to issue an SSL certificate when a nameserver change is involved.
  • If you add a large number of domains in a short period of time, it may take 24-72 hours or more to reflect.
  • If the domain name exceeds 64 characters, the SSL certificate cannot be used.
  • If the subdomain that is automatically set when adding a domain exceeds 64 characters, please change the subdomain to a shorter one.
  • Please note that setting in the Japanese domain (Punycode) may exceed the number of characters.
