alwaysdata automatically generates and renews a Let’s Encrypt certificate for every address pointing to our servers and it is added in the Web > Sites section. Hence, every site hosted on its servers handles HTTPS protocol.
You can view them in the Advanced > SSL certificates > Automatically generated certificates section:
To avoid duplicates, alwaysdata blocks Let’s Encrypt certificate generation for all addresses that are already generated automatically. You can contact support if you wish to completely manage SSL certificate generation for a domain.
.alwaysdata.net addresses are handled by the
*.alwaysdata.net wildcard certificate returned by default by the servers.
The creation of these certificates is dependent on DNS propagation: the address must point to alwaysdata servers. Once the address is added in Web > Sites, the system will attempt to generate its certificate every 30 minutes for 24 hours. This will then change to once a day.
People who add the addresses before changing the DNS records can, after making the changes with their DNS provider, restart autogeneration by deleting the addresses from the site in Web > Sites and putting them back a few seconds later.
From 20 SSL certificates per domain, i.e. from the 20th subdomain has been added to Web > Sites, the system will generate a wildcard certificate to manage the following subdomains.
When a domain use our DNS servers, it is possible to generate a wildcard certificate - *.example.org structure - in Advanced > SSL certificates > Add a SSL certificate > Create a Let’s Encrypt certificate. This certificate will be automatically renewed by the system.
