I wonder if anyone is able to point me in the right direction?
We want to setup a sub domain on our server which points to an IP of a second server which is providing some checkout functionality for us.
So when a customer types sub-domain.ourDomainName they see a web page hosted by server.TheOtherDomain. We think this bit is easy enough with DNS, right?
But, we also want to enable SSL, so our certificate is for sub-domain.ourDomainName but we understand that the certifcate will fail browser validation as a reverse lookup is performed on the IP of the web site - and the reverse lookup will return server.TheOtherDomain..
We maybe looking at this incorrectly, but any advise on options would be much appreciated.
