Configure SSL on an external domain name

You have an external domain and you want to use it for your AppDrag project?
First, follow this tutorial: https://support.appdrag.com/blog/61-Connecting-a-Domain-Purchased-Elsewhere.html?category=6


Here is few steps to activate your SSL:

1- Go to your dashboard project and then click on domain & SSL

2- Click on Activate SSL and save







After this, wait for 30min and come back in "Main Domain & SSL" to continue the process


3- Validate the SSL certificate by adding a verfication CNAME DNS entry on your domain:

after 30 minutes you should see new instructions like below, asking you to create a CNAME DNS entry with your third party registrar

Go to your registrar (Godaddy, OVH, ...), open the DNS panel, add a new CNAME with the key and the value you'll see on your screen (unique for each website)


When it's done, you will have this message (after 30 minutes)


It takes 1 hour to activate your SSL. When it's done, you will get this message on your dashboard and an email of confirmation.


4- The last step is to go to your registrar and modify the CNAME entry for WWW

Change this one
CNAME Key: www
CNAME value: custom-domain.appdrag.com

TO

CNAME Key: www
CNAME value: the value you will see in Main Domain & SSL (it's unique per website)


And then it's done. You will have a secure website on your external domain!


FYI: If you have purchased your domain with us or transfered your domain to us, all this above is automatic!
