How I get SSL for my Subdomain and show me other SSL Certificates

  • Posted November 7, 2021

Hello together,

I have the following conditions:

  • Bought Domain at Namecheap
  • Did DNS with AWS
  • At AWS is a CNAME to my Domain here at DO (it is a tracking Server/Domain)
  • I use a Subdomain at my tracking Tool. The Tracking Tool is hosted on DO. I need a SSL certificate for this Subdomain. So I must install the SSL certificate on my DO Server.

I know that the IT expert at my company has already used this procedure for other subdomains. (He’s no longer with the company, so I can’t ask him)

How do I get to the console of my DO server and with which command can I check whether there are already more SSL certificates for other subdomains? In AWS it is e.g. sudo certbot certificates (I use let’s encrypt there)

Thanks a lot

Hello,

You can also use Let’s Encrypt together with certbot on your DigitalOcean server.

Here is a link to a step by step article on how to install certbot and use it:
