Load balancer SSL Multi Domains


I have 3 domains and i want to use SLL with one load balancer.

Will Digital Ocean allow me to use a Multi domain SSl purchased from Namecheap for all 3 domains on 1 load balancer?

I have read if i use the free Let’s encrypt SSL it only allows me to use 1 domain per SSL and i will need to purchase 3 Load Balancers (one for each domain/SSL) .

Hello @tomrproactive ,

your correct you can only attach one domain + its subdomains to an SSL.

There is an option to bring your own SSL where you could bring a multidomain cert from elsewhere.

We would like this feature too and for the external domains using CNAME’ing like Heroku or Render or your own App Platform do it. Even the open-source app platform Coolify can do this.

This is very critical indeed - I just finished the migration from AWS and i discovered that and there is no solution to solve it. AWS Load balancer can handle 100s of those on the same load balancer I have 8 apps runnins each its own domain That would not make sense to have 8 load balancers and all the loas balancers will point to the same group of VMs (droplets)

… Aghhh so disapointing again
