Question

I connected my subdomain from GoDaddy to DO droplet but it gives SSL error when I try to visit it

I added an A record in Godaddy to point to my DO droplet that runs Strapi CMS and that works, but when I try to access api.milos-vujinic.dev I get Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead.

Is there a way to mitigate this issue and enable SSL without transferring the domain management to DO?

Hello, @milos5593

Have you installed an SSL Certificate for the domain name on the server?

If not, you can follow our tutorial on How To Secure Nginx with Let’s Encrypt on Ubuntu 20.04:
