Question

SSL for Digital Ocean apps

Hey everyone, I am new to Digital Ocean and I deployed one of my GitHub repositories using the new app feature. I linked my domain and it’s working perfectly.

One question, how does SSL work with this app feature? Is it done automatically or do I need to change some setting to enable SSL on my domain that I connected to my GitHub app?

I have found some SSL certificate setting under “Settings” and “Security” but I am not sure if this applies to the app feature.

Appreciate your help.

Hello,

If you are using the DigitalOCean App Platform this is all done automatically. With the App Platform, DigitalOcean creates, manages, and renews your SSL certificates automatically.

In case that you are using a Droplet, then you could get an SSL certificate by following the steps here:

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
