    Does your system use 128 bit cipher? By default a lot of installs came with 56 bit and will produce that error. Of course, it'll do that if the virtual host directives aren't correct too.

    are u able to access your website http://www.domain.com ?
    One should not be getting a dns error with https if http is resolving.

    Was the SSL registered for domain.com or www.domain.com or something else ?

    dedicated IP?

    I had similar problem. It was resolved when I gave a dedicated IP to domain.com.
    So make make sure your domain has a dedicated IP, not shared IP.
    Thanks,

    Usually you would have https://www.domain.com or https://secure.domain.com - It will only work for the domain name as the cert was setup for - Not always true though - you can sometimes view by https://domain.com but receive errors saying the url does not match the certificate... how was the domain entered when requesting the cert?

    And yes, the domain needs it's own IP address
