TLS certificate is being provisioned

I setup a subdomain (For example subdomain.example.me) on namecheap by adding a CNAME.
All my A records are properly pointing to Github pages servers.
My website https://ppalone.me works fine.
But when I add a custom sub domain to github pages, the pages are hosted with the subdomain but unable to generate the TLS Certificate.
I shows “TLS certificate is being provisioned. This may take up to 15 minutes to complete.”

Hi @ppalone, welcome to the GitHub Support Community! Which subdomain are you having trouble with specifically? It looks like your ppalone.me domain has a certificate that covers both the apex and the www subdomain, but are you seeing this issue with a different one?

@thomasshaped Few days ago I setup a subdomain (blog.ppalone.me) and added it to GitHub pages which got added very quickly and TLS Certificate was generated within minutes and “Enforce HTTP” options was also enabled.
Today I added a new subdomain (articles.ppalone.me) but this time TLS Certificate didn’t generate quickly, I waited for around 6 hours but its still the same.

Its a low priority issue and also I can host the page like ppalone.me/articles with HTTPS. But articles.ppalone.me sounds badass :sweat_smile:

Looks like it’s fixed now! :boom: I pressed some buttons on the back-end to re-request that certificate and looks like it’s gone through. Usually this should resolve itself automatically over time/when you visit the repository settings page, but I pushed it through for you.

Your site should be secure now! https://articles.ppalone.me/

@thomasshaped is this a general issue that can be solved by the end user?

We have the same issue at

https://github.com/texfaq/texfaq.github.io/settings/pages

dig www.texfaq.org shows what I think is the correct DNS records

;; ANSWER SECTION:
www.texfaq.org. 0 IN CNAME texfaq.github.io.
texfaq.github.io. 0 IN A 185.199.108.153
texfaq.github.io. 0 IN A 185.199.110.153
texfaq.github.io. 0 IN A 185.199.111.153
texfaq.github.io. 0 IN A 185.199.109.153

But github pages never picks up a certificate and

https://www.texfaq.org/

just gives a security warning page in most browsers.
