    It looks like you are getting two errors.

    One is the domain the certificate was issued to is apchosting.net to get www.apchosting.net you must enter that in the domain name field when you generate the CSR rather than apchosting.net

    Second is it is a self signed certificate, while this will work as long as a user clicks on the Yes to proceed you will still get an error message popup every time as the browser will not trust the certificate.

    The only way not to get the error is to have a certificate issued from a Trusted Certificate Root (ie. you have to buy one).
