Automatic SSL renewal

No longer you need to worry about SSL certificate renewals and go through hassle that comes with it. At Bynder we can now automatically request or renew your SSL certificate, so that you no longer have to worry about expiration dates or potential down time. Read more about this procedure below.

When you want to use a custom domain name for your portal a SSL certificate is necessary. This certificate needs to be renewed after a certain amount of time. Normally the certificate expires after one year. We can now request or renew a SSL certificate for you and make sure that it will be renewed automatically using AWS' latest technique. The only thing needed from your side is to add two DNS records to your domain setup.

Select your current situation below:

  1. When you're still in the implementation phase, please contact your implementation consultant. Please reach out to your Customer Success Manager if the portal is already live.

  2. Provide them with the primary domain or subdomain for which the SSL certificate needs to be requested.

  3. We will provide you with two DNS records that need to be added on your side. One CNAME record is used for verifying that the domain name is truly yours and to authorize AWS to request or renew the SSL certificate on your behalf. The other record is used to redirect the domain name to the right server. You can find instructions on adding a CNAME for most common domain registrars below:
