HTTPS is an internet communication protocol that protects the integrity and confidentiality of data between users and websites. Adopting HTTPS is always encouraged in order to protect end-users connection to websites regardless of the content being served.
Here’s how you can get started using HTTPS to secure your custom Skilljar domain:
- Contact your dedicated Customer Success Manager to request that a CSR file be generated for your custom domain
- Once you receive the CSR file from your Customer Success Manager, use it to purchase a SSL certificate from the certificate authority of your choice
- Once purchased, send the SSL certificate to your Customer Success Manager and we’ll take care of setting up the new secure endpoint for your custom domain
- Your Customer Success Manager will then let you know when you can update your CNAME entry point to the new secure endpoint (i.e. learn.example.com > ssl-example.skilljar.com)
This setup may require some assistance from your internal IT team. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to your dedicated CSM or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
