Setting up free TLS
Customers can use our shared domain TLS wildcard certificate for free. Follow the steps below to set up free TLS:
Log in to the Fastly application and click the configure tab (wrench icon).
From the Service menu, select the appropriate service, and then click the blue Configure button. The main controls for the selected service appear.
Click Domains from the section list on the left. The Domains window appears.
Click the New button. The New Domain pane appears.
In the Domain Name field, type
[name]is a single word. If the name has already been taken, you will need to pick a different one.IMPORTANT:
[name]can only be a single word. You cannot use a dot-separated name such as
www.example.com.global.ssl.fastly.netbecause nesting in TLS certificates is not supported.
Click Create to save the domain. The new domain appears in the list of domains.
Deploy your service.
You should be able to access the domain via the following URL:
https://<name>.global.ssl.fastly.net/. Note that you don't need to add CNAME records to use the shared domain certificate.
www.example.com) to that name (
example.global.ssl.fastly.net) a TLS name mismatch warning will appear in the browser. The only way to fix the mismatch is to add your domain to our TLS certificate. For more information, see our TLS options guide.
