Hello,

There are a few ways of getting an SSL certificate.

  • You could create a DigitalOcean Load Balancer with SSL termination as per the instructions here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/networking/load-balancers/how-to/ssl-termination/

  • If you already have a web server like Nginx, you could get a free Let’s Encrypt SSL by following the steps here:

Hope that this helps!
Best,
Bobby

Let's Encrypt is a Certificate Authority (CA) that provides an easy way to obtain and install free TLS/SSL certificates, thereby enabling encrypted HTTPS on web servers. It simplifies the process by providing a software client, Certbot, that attempts to automate most (if not all) of the required steps. In this tutorial, you will use Certbot to obtain a free SSL certificate for Nginx on Ubuntu 20.04, and set up your certificate to renew automatically.
