I use the DNS from Windows 2012 r2 to create an A record to forward a www.domainname.com to an ip address outside the domain, where the www is located. This works.

But, the website-builder has created a https://www.domainname.com to secure this domain via a certificate.

When i forward the www to an IP address the site is not displayed. It says; this page cannot be displayed.

What i did:

1)  restart dns services
2) reboot server
3) created a forward lookup zone domainname.com and created a record to point www to the ip address outside the domain.

Nothing works.

Any ideas?
