App platform termination point

Is there a way to disable the app platform as the termination point for ssl/tls? I really want to launch my app here since I can have db, spaces, etc. but this is the only thing holding me back.

Hi there

I don’t think that you can disable the HTTP to HTTPS redirect with he App Platform, if you are using the DigitalOCean App Platform this is all done automatically. With the App Platform, DigitalOcean creates, manages, and renews your SSL certificates automatically.

Would you mind clarifying why do you need to disable the SSL for your website?

What you could do is introduce an Nginx load balancer where you handle the SSL termination before it reaches the App Platform.
