SSL Certificate for your reseller apps
Automatic generated SSL certificates included in your reseller offer for white labeled URLs
As a reseller, to white label the URLs of your apps you have 2 options:
- Option 1 - Add a different domain name on each one of your apps, so those projects can be accessed by default by https://www.customerdomain.com/
No action is needed to generate a free automatic GoodBarber SSL certificate.
The generation of a single SSL certificate can take up to 24 - 48 hours.
- Option 2 - Add a domain name to your Reseller agency that will be used for each one of your apps, so that each project in your reseller account can be accessed by default by https://projectname.yourdomain.com/
No action is needed to generate a free automatic WildCard certificate for your reseller domain name.
The generation of a wild card SSL certificate can take up to 24 - 48 hours.
A Wildcard SSL Certificate secures your domain and unlimited subdomains on a single certificate.
A single Wildcard SSL Certificate covers any and all of the subdomains of your main domain.
- Generating a wildcard SSL certificate is only possible if you own a domain name and you've already installed it on your GoodBarber reseller dashboard.
- If you wish to buy and install your own Wildcard certificate, we only manage Gandi's wildcard SSL certificates, you can not buy it from an other platform than Gandi.
