SSL error with redirected domain

I own auroragroup.com.au and auroragroup.org.au. Both domains are with GoDaddy. I have the .com.au address set to permanent redirect to the .org.au address. The .org.au address is hosted with Squarespace.

 

If people go to https://www.auroragroup.com.au/ they get This Connection Is Not Private. At https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html it says the certificate was issued by GoDaddy and "None of the common names in the certificate match the name that was entered (auroragroup.com.au). You may receive an error when accessing this site in a web browser."

 

If people go to www.auroragroup.com.au it successfully redirects with no issue to https://www.auroragroup.org.au and there are no SSL issues.

 

How can I get rid of the SSL error at https://www.auroragroup.com.au?

 

It's important because we've recently changed from .com.au to .org.au and links using https://www.auroragroup.com.au are still out there - so people will be using them and getting the SSL error.

 

I've tried to use the chat support function and spoken to 3 separate people for over 1 hour but they are beyond useless.

If you are using the GoDaddy forwarding via the DNS manager this is not possible as GoDaddy does not provide SSL forwarding.

 

I know that if you use CloudFlare DNS services they offer SSL forwarding - I also just found https://redirect.pizza/ via a Google Search. I've used CloudFlare before and it works fine I just wanted to give you another option as well.
