DNSimple, and await verification.
You should end up with one cert, which we will use with both domains. Login toA
MaxCDN (creds are in 1Password). Go to Account > SSL
and edit the one certificate you find there, pasting in values copied from the
files you find under
cert1.pem→ SSL Certificate (Cert)
privkey1.pem→ SSL Key
fullchain.pem→ Certificate Authority (CA) Bundle
Once you're done,
rm -rf tmp to clear out sensitive files from your laptop.
