I am currently working on my wordpress layout, and it seems to be working ok so far except when I type https://www.mackintheboxproject.com it shows me secure21.webhostighub.com message and my ip address instead of pointing to the site. However, if I type in just www.mackintheboxproject.com it works. I can also type in http://www.mackintheboxproject.com and it will redirect to www.mackintheboxproject.com. I've tried several different things to rectify the problem but I can't seem to find where the issue is. Please help.

Hello mackinthebox,

Thank you for your question. I checked the links you provided and I am also having an issue with the Secure URL:
https://www.mackintheboxproject.com

When you access a website on the secure URL https, it requires an SSL certificate. This is typically required if you are processing payments, or collecting sensitive information from visitors.

Unless you purchase an SSL for mackintheboxproject.com, the only one available is a shared SSL for your server.

For example: secure21.webhostinghub.com

It seems it is redirecting to that address (secure21.webhostinghub.com) because it is the only address listed in the certificate.

You can use the shared SSL for your website, but it will show the TEMP URL in the address bar.

For example: https://secure21.webhostinghub.com/~usern99

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

-John-Paul
