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

Yikes, it's been two years and this still isn't implemented. I'll probably look into a different host for my webpages. You get what you pay for I guess.

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

Finally found a workaround to this today!

 

What I did was

  • In the DNS Editor of my domain (I use GoDaddy) I added a CNAME with www as the host, which points to ourcompany.github.io
  • In the settings on the repository where I used to have salt.dev - I switched it to be www.salt.dev
  • The CNAME file in my repository just contains salt.dev

 

Now it works properly for me.

https://www.salt.dev/

https://salt.dev/

@miesmandoki You just fixed it temporarily, because it already created the SSL certificate for salt.dev (without the www), and by switching it now also created the SSL certificate for www.salt.dev, but it will only renew the latter, so when the SSL certificates expires, you'll have the same problem

Are you sure?

 

If that's the case - then all I'd need to do is switch it back and forth once every three months to renew the certificates, correct?
