How to send TLS certificate and private key

Modified on Fri, 8 Dec, 2023 at 12:02 PM

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 certificate is a file starting with ----- BEGIN CERTIFICATE ----- 

You have two options for transferring this data.

You can go to in the Organisation > Certificates section and do it yourself.

You can also ask our support team to help you with this process.

After uploading the certificate, a page lists the domain names that match configurations in our system. All you have to do is click on "Use this certificate for a config" to have the certificate installed on the platform.

Updating the CDN configuration takes around five minutes.

Caution: A 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.

Please note that the length of your key must be 1024 or 2048 bits and cannot exceed 2048 bits.
