webmail.example.com. It is recommended to select this checkbox.

III. Secure the main domain with it’s aliases:

- Select the newly issued Let’s Encrypt certificate from the Certificate menu, and click OK.
To secure domain alias with a paid certificate, contact a certificate provider to add the alias name to the certificate as the subject alternative name (SAN). Then, secure the main domain with this certificate as described here.
