Hi @bartoszszczepanik,

We can just use SSL cert on your console page as your Spaces custom domain SSL.If you want to deploy your certificate on your web server like Apache/Nginx,you can follow this tutorial How To Secure Apache with Let’s Encrypt on Ubuntu 18.04.This tutorial based on Ubuntu18.04 system,but you can also use it with your CentOS 8.Just run yum install sudo -y and yum install apt -y.If there are questions,you can also search How to install apt by using yum.

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. In this tutorial, you will use Certbot to obtain a free SSL certificate for Apache on Ubuntu 18.04 and set up your certificate to renew automatically.
