DDoS Protection
Zenlayer DDoS Protection adds free SSL certificate creation and auto-renewal 
Posted On: Nov 22, 2022

Customers of our layer 7 DDoS Protection can now create and automatically renew SSL certificates for free while using our DDoS Protection Console.  

It’s critical for any business operating online to have an up-to-date certificate to remain trustworthy to visitors and avoid the dreaded “Not secure” designation bestowed by popular internet browsers. Expired certificates can drive away prospective customers, return ing shoppers, and pretty much anyone that lands on your website!  

That’s why we made it easy and free for you to create your certificate and set it up for automatic renewal. To get started, just follow these simple steps:  

1. Log in to the DDoS Protection Console and navigate to Certificates using the navigation bar to the left.

   4. Once your CNAME record is verified, you’ll be greeted with a message that lets you know your domain name has passed verification. Simply click on Close to complete the process. From there, you can rest easy knowing that the DDoS will automatically renew your certificate for you.

Please note: if you want the console to automatically renew your certificate, be sure to keep the CNAME record in your DNS resolver!
