In order to accept and optimize the HTTPS traffic of your site, we will have to install in our servers the public certificate and the private key in PEM format. This step is required to ensure TLS termination of your site. 

The private key is a file starting with ----- BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY ----- 
The SSL certificate is a file starting with ----- BEGIN CERTIFICATE ----- 

For the transfer of these data, here is the procedure to follow: 

· Step 1: send an email to with the two files (certificate and private key) in an archive protected by a password. 

· Step 2: send the password of the archive in another email to 

If the private key is encrypted, please also provide us with the associated password. 

Caution: An SSL certificate has a limited life. Fasterize sends you a reminder as the expiration date of your certificate (s) expires. 

Generating a new certificate via a CSR request

If you want to generate a certificate only for Fasterize, it is possible to ask us to generate a CSR file. The private key will then be generated on our servers and we will send you a CSR file to send to your CA. Once the public certificate has been generated, we will install it on our platform.
