    Hello! Almost have the server perfectly configured but can't figure this one out.

    I'm trying to have the directives or vhost configuration to redirect misspelled subdomains to the main domain, e.g. to redirect to

    However the misspelled domains instead give a https error page instead of redirecting. I do not have a wildcard SSL cert and it's currently using the built-in SSL feature. I've searched thoroughly, but cannot find the solution despite using many different tutorials.

    Under sites I have the following config:
    IPv4-Address: *
    Dependent sub- / aliasdomains: *
    Auto-Subdomain: *.
    SSL: Checked
    Let's Encrypt SSL: Checked

    Redirect Type: No flag
    Redirect Path: Blank
    SEO Redirect: *.domain.tdl => domain.tdl
    Rewrite Rules: Blank
    Rewrite HTTP to HTTPS: Checked

    Any help in solving this would be super appreciated!

    There is no solution except getting a wildcard SSL cert in my opinion. A redirect always happens after SSL connect, so if SSL connect fails or requires to accept a wrong SSL cert, then you don't get redirected.
