Announcing Custom Subdomains with SSL for Spaces CDN.

You can now map a custom subdomain to Spaces CDN, securing it with an automatically provisioned Let's Encrypt certificate or by uploading your own.

How to set it up?

Thanks for the reply.
I am used a subdomain of a domain with the dns already managed on cloudflare.
If I create a cname record to the space end point it will give a "too many redirection" errors.
Do you have solution for this problem?

  • Any solution to this issue?
    I am willing to use the spaces service for my customers, but they all manage their DNS separately as they manage several external services like mail, local services in their company network, ... that they are not willing to manage on Digital Ocean.
    The easiest would be the ability to point a subdomain to a reverse proxy at Digital Ocean that manages Let's Encrypt certificates and route to the right space.
