I'm used to deal with wordpress on shared hosts and I'd never worried about SSL. Now I have to migrate a site to a VPS and I noticed that I can't just reference my domains with a
A Record or a
CNAME as I could on a shared host without getting a warning about the SSL certificate on my site when I try to log in.
I can use the website with the domain provided by the hosting company (i.e.: bla.heroku.com , bla.rhcloud.com, bla.pagodabox.com, etc).
I know Wordpress can have the SSL disabled on it's setup preferences and I may be able to log in with and use the backend with no warning, but I think that's not the best option. I'd like to know if there is another option on this case or even get to know how does SSL works on shared hosts. Thanks
