How to Install an SSL Certificate

Total Uptime gives you the ability to load an SSL certificate and key pair for use in SSL offload or decrypting the SSL session in order to insert client IP headers.  This article describes the process of retrieving your certificate and key files from a Linux web server, uploading them, and pairing them in our […]

Retrieve All SSL Certificate and Key Pairings

Method:              GET URI:                      /ALF/SSL/CertKeyPair/All?{options} This method will retrieve all of the SSL Cert/Key pairs. The {options} allow you to refine the results retrieved from the API. They must be formatted as a query string, e.g. if you use more […]

Delete SSL Certificate

Do you support SAN (Subject Alternative Name) extension SSL Certificates?

Yes, we absolutely do, and always have. Before we supported SNI, we recommended that clients with multiple domains on a single IP address use a SAN (Subject Alternative Name) extension certificate. To use one of these, simply attach it as a standard SSL certificate (that is, do not check the SNI box when attaching it). […]

Do you support SNI (Server Name Indication) SSL Certificates?

Yes, we sure do. This fairly recent extension of the TLS protocol allows you to indicate which hostname is being contacted by the browser at the beginning of the handshake process. This allows a server to connect multiple SSL Certificates to one IP address and load the correct site or application for the user. Previously […]

Do you support FREE SSL Certificates from Let’s Encrypt?

Yes, absolutely. There are no issues using their SSL certificates on our platform for Load Balancing or the Web Application Firewall. In fact, we already have the Let’s Encrypt Authority Intermediate certificate loaded into our repository and ready for your use.  You can upload certificates manually through our UI, or you can automate/script the entire […]

I want to install the SSL certificate on the Load Balancer and use the SSL protocol, but I don’t want SSL Offload. I want it to remain entirely encrypted between my client and my server. Is this possible?

Yes, this is absolutely possible, and recommended! To accomplish this, you will need to configure the “protocol” as SSL and map it also to SSL on your servers (both probably on port 443). This ensures SSL is maintained between the client and your servers, while still allowing you to take advantage of our SSL acceleration, […]
