Need to switch primary domain, switch SSL certificate and forward domains

Dear Community,

 

After repeatedly googling and looking for answers in the existing help, I have finally decided to post here. First, my setup (all domain names are fictional)

 

  1. I currently have Economy Web Hosting Linux 
  2. I currently have 2 domains both of which are registered and managed under GoDaddy

 

Some back story is necessary in order to explain the whole scenario (in chronological order)

  1. My company purchased domain1.com which is the primary domain on the hosting
  2. An SSL certificate was purchased with GoDaddy and installed
  3. A redirect was created for http://www.domian1.com to https://www.domain1.com
  4. My company purchased domain2.net from a domain seller
  5. Domain2.net was transferred into GoDaddy and is being managed in GoDaddy
  6. Domain2.net was connect to hosting account mentioned in step 1 above

Currently navigating to http://www.domian1.com redirects the users to https://www.domain1.com and  navigating to http://www.domain2.net brings up the same site hosted in GoDaddy but navigating to https://www.domain2.net gives an SSL warning that your connection is not secure. 

 

Here is what I would like to have happen; when navigating to http://www.domain1.com or https://www.domain1.com or http://www.domain2.net, the user should be redirected to https:www.domain2.net

 

I found the following article but some links in the article are not working and most instructions are not applicable to me

 

https://www.godaddy.com/help/change-the-domain-name-common-name-on-my-ssl-certificate-9189

 

I am assuming I need to uninstall the SSL certificate, then reinstall the SSL certificate registered with the new domain and then setup the forwarding. Any articles that you guys can reference, I would really appreciate it. 

 

Thanks
