Re: Does GitHub Pages Support HTTPS for www and @ subdomains?

It would be great to get an update on this from GitHub - is this feature being actively developed?

Re: Does GitHub Pages Support HTTPS for www and @ subdomains?

Sorry for jumping on the "any updates?" bandwagon but this would be a HUGE help! I've been trying to find an easy solution to suggest to people in this situation and there doesn't seem to be much out there that are both one-click and reliable, unless they're lucky enough to have used a registrar that does this like Google Domains does.

 

It seems like a pretty safe assumption that if someone enters an apex domain then they'll want www to mirror it/redirect to it — wanting different content at @ and www is a super rare edge case (and probably accidental if it does occur, to be honest). My vote is for adding www as an alt name on the LE certificate when generating it by default if the user inputs an apex domain as the custom domain.

 

Thanks! :)

 

edit: Would unmarking this as "solved" help bring more attention?

Re: Does GitHub Pages Support HTTPS for www and @ subdomains?

Thanks for describing the problem Tsmith18256 and thanks  for the answer. I'm having the same problem (but with .com) and found this thread. Just want to add +1 for this feature.

So currently for me:

$ curl -I http://www.sergeyalekseev.com
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Location: https://sergeyalekseev.com/
$ curl -I http://sergeyalekseev.com
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Location: https://sergeyalekseev.com/
$ curl -I https://sergeyalekseev.com
HTTP/2 200

but

$ curl -I https://www.sergeyalekseev.com
curl: (51) SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name 'www.sergeyalekseev.com'


In my view it totally makes sense to generate an SSL certificate for a www version as well.

I get that the feature isn't available yet, but I find it really disturbing that the "Configuring an apex domain" doc explicitely suggests to set up both a www and an apex domain, without mentioning that this is just incompatible with using HTTPS. Thit is very misleading

Cross-posted at https://github.com/isaacs/github/issues/1675, hopefully this can get some more visibility...
