SSL Certificate

I have a SSL Cert for "exch.avdenterprises.com" and "autodiscover.avdenterprises.com" for my mail server.  I do NOT have one on "www.avdenterprises.com"

Today when I did an "SSL Check" on "avdenterprises.com" it showed me an apparent different certificate that expires on 7/21 when mine expires on 11/9.

https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=avdenterprises.com

GoDaddy (my hosting provider) says this is due to a shared IP and means nothing.

Can anyone experienced in SSL certificates confirm this for me.

Thanks.

Well.. https://avdenterprises.com/ goes nowhere useful, nor does https://www.avdenterprises.com/

http://www.avdenterprises.com (and the site without the www.) redirects to http://avdsupport.com/

If that last address is your site, and you aren't using HTTPS for your website... I'd say you are probably fine.  The certificate that is expiring is for studywheel.com.

Yes, that is all true and correct and avdsupport.com is my site.

But, why when looking up "avdenterprises.com" with an SSL checker/verifier does it show studywheel.com which has nothing to do with me (nor is it mine)?

That just seems odd.  :)

Thanks.

Obviously, the SSL checker/verifier isn't a human brain, and can only process simple information.
You have a name, it resolved to an IP address, and that IP address, when NOT linked to a name, so in this example, it's :  https://173.201.207.34 will serve the studywheel.com certificate (because GoDaddy configured it that way).
That's why your report looks as it is now. GoDaddy is honest, and the answer is indeed, shared IP, and it does indeed mean nothing.
