I've been banging my head on this for a while now. Finally found this thread makes me believe I may just need to wait.

I know the thread is okd, just hoping you can confirm for me.
GitHub is setup with custom domain.
Namecheap I have configured with a records to the 4 ips.
GitHub works with https but I'm getting githubs cert from digicert and not one for my site. Are you saying I just need to wait for the cert to generate?

Hi! @keric28

Normally it takes about 24 hours for github to generate certificate for the given domain.

However, you might also want to check for your domains record. As in my case i had created sub domain WWW and pointed to the apex (main) domain. if you are doing something similar then make sure to point it to your *.github.io

Yep, had checked that, thanks.

Time heals all wounds. And apparently GitHub pages cert errors. It's working :)
