If a domain name is bound to your simple application server, you can configure HTTPS-encrypted access to the domain name. This access method leverages encryption and identity authentication to ensure the security of data transmission. This topic describes how to enable HTTPS-encrypted access.

Prerequisites

  • When you created the simple application server, you selected Select extended services provided by Alibaba Cloud. For more information, see Create a server.
    Note The Select extended services provided by Alibaba Cloud option is available only for some images. If this option is unavailable when you select an image, the method described in this topic is not applicable to the image that you selected.
  • If your simple application server is located within a region inside mainland China, you must obtain an Internet Content Provider (ICP) filing for the domain name. For more information, see What is an ICP filing?.
  • The domain name is bound to the simple application server by using Alibaba Cloud DNS. For more information, see Domain Management.
  • A Secure Shell (SSL) certificate is associated with the domain name. This certificate can be a free or paid certificate that is issued by Alibaba Cloud or a third-party service provider. For more information, see What is SSL Certificates Service?.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Simple Application Server console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Servers.
  3. Find the simple application server you want to configure and click the card of the server.
  4. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Website > Domains.
  5. Find the domain name for which you want to configure HTTPS-encrypted access, and click HTTPS in the Actions column.
    Note SSL certificates are not automatically matched for domain names. You must manually select a SSL certificate for the domain name.
  6. In the HTTPS dialog box, configure the parameters and click OK.
    Select a certificate that is associated with the domain name from the SSL certificate drop-down list, and turn on Enable.

Result

After HTTPS-encrypted access is enabled for the domain name, the security icon appears in the address bar of your browser when you access http://<Domain name bound to the simple application server>.
