Sorry for the issues that you're facing with your WordPress login.  What you're saying doesn't really make a lot of sense.  SSL certificates are assigned to a specific URL and even Wildcard SSLs are assigned to a common base.  So, an SSL certificate causing your WP site to have 2 different URLs going to the SAME WordPress site seems unlikely. 

We would need more information about your WordPress site in order to diagnose or investigate the issue.  I would recommend looking at your wp-config.php file or WordPress database to see how your site is configured.  You definitely should disable plugins that could possibly alter how you login to WordPress.  A Changed login URL is typically the result of a security plugin (if you have one installed).  You should consult with your security plugin's documentation or support to see how it should be properly used with an SSL certificate.

Additionally, you should make sure that no re-directs are affecting your login.  And, if they are then it's possible that the re-directed URL would NOT be covered by the SSL Certificate.  For example, if you purchased an SSL certificate for example.com and then redirected to example2.com, then the URL would not be secured by the certificate.

In any case, we would need more information to study the issue in more depth.  If you wish for to look further into the problem, please provide more information about the your WordPress installation.  The plugins you have installed, your domain name, and the specifics about your SSL certificate.  What domain was your certificate assigned to?  And how did you apply it to your WordPress site.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.
