SSL Certificate not working https://domainname.com

Hi there,

 

I saw another community post similar to this, but wasn't able to figure out how to solve this issue.

 

I bought the domain name from GoDaddy, but the website lives on a third party vendor's server. I sent them the SSL certificate to upload to their servers. 

 

mydomain.com is working 

http://mydomain.com is working 

http://www.mydomain.com is working

https://www.mydomain.com is working 

https://mydomain.com is not working and is getting a certificate error. 

 

I have a 303 set up on GoDaddy as you can see below:

Hi. Please be advised that you you are setting up forwarding. Please do not force your website to go to HTTPS using domain forwarding. This is because of how https works. First the secure connection must be established, which requires the certificate. Only then can the http request and the redirect response be made.
