GoDaddy SSL hostname mismatch

With the help of forum members, I was able to generate a CSR from Filemaker for a GoDaddy certificate. It is working, but still not trusted by Filemaker itself. I just installed FMP 16 and it generated an error immediately I tried to connect. The error is generated by OSX (Sierra) and it's a hostname mismatch. For domain validation, I used the HTML file method. I know this is probably a GoDaddy issue too - but when I contacted their support regarding generating a request from FileMaker, the person I spoke to asked me what FileMaker Pro was as he had "never heard of it". How can I fix this mismatch and where is it mismatched? I work for a university and I'm not sure how they validate their domains - this was a new one they created for me. I'd like this SSL to be perfect. Thanks for your time, it's much appreciated.
