Insecure Connection error

But when my accountant tried to connect using www.mycompany.quickfile.co.uk it failed with an “Insecure Connection” with the message "Your connection is not secure

This isn’t something that can be “fixed” due to the way web server certificates work - the QuickFile web server has a certificate covering *.quickfile.co.uk which covers anything before the first dot, but only the first dot. You can only do a wildcard for the first component of a hostname, it’s not possible to get one for www.*.quickfile.co.uk
