This question already has an answer here:

Am I right in thinking that in order to redirect an https URL to another https URL without a certificate warning, the first https URL has to have it's own valid certificate and IP address?

Am trying to setup some redirects for http and https from a bunch of domains to a secure URL.

The redirection source page will not load without warning from ssl unless you have a certificate for the domain. This is by design.

To get rid of the additional ip address you could get a SAN certificate.

Ok. This makes sense. Thank you. –  Elijah Paul May 31 '13 at 16:50

Certificate? Yes. IP address? No, if all clients are capable of doing SNI; otherwise, yes.
