Installing TLS Certificates

TLS certificates are necessary to enable secure HTTPS connections between a browser and your application. These certificates can be bought online, or generated by Clever Cloud. In that case, we manage the whole process for you.

There is two ways to get HTTPS for your apps:

  1. Let's Encrypt: This is the quick and easy way to get a TLS certificate on Clever Cloud.
  2. Your own certificates: If you already have a certificate, you can upload it securely.

Getting a Let's Encrypt certificate

We automatically generate certificates when you add a domain name to your app. It's all you have to do, our internal certificate generator will create a TLS certificate for a domain or a sub-domain.

We do not support wildcard Let's Encrypt certificates at the moment. If you need a wildcard certificate, you can either generate a Let's Encrypt certificate yourself or buy one (we can resell one to you, in which case we will deal with the csr generation ourselves).

If you want to mention extended validation certificates (not domain validation), I guess you should add a new section.

Uploading certificates

You can upload certificates yourself: https://api.clever-cloud.com/v2/certificates/new

You need to paste a PEM bundle containing (in this order):

  • the private key
  • the certificate itself
  • intermediate certificates

If you need manual operations on the certificates, the most secure way to transfer your certificates is using a signed and encrypted email. Our dedicated email for receiving certificates is ssl@clever-cloud.com.

Security

Do not send any of these files via an unsecure way. The integrity of your certificate may not be guaranteed.
