Question

Is it possible to let users have custom domain point to my app with https auto enable for them.

If I want to launch Ruby on Rails website where users can have their dedicated page 1.) as sub domain i.e. user-subdomain-name.my-service.com 2.) as custom domain i.e. user-custom-domain-name.com

and also enabled https for both subdomain and custom domain.

Is it possible to do this automatically? Let say once my app get this information from user I run some script to make this happen.

@sarunw you should be able to do something like the following in your nginx configuration:

server {
	listen 80 default_server;
	listen [::]:80 default_server;
	server_name _;
	return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
}
