Custom Certificates

This feature is only available for Umbraco Cloud projects on a Professional or Enterprise plan.

All projects on Starter, Standard, or Professional plans will automatically be assigned a Transport Layer Security (HTTPS) certificate.

See the full list of features in the Umbraco Cloud Pricing Plans on the Umbraco website.

To manually upload your certificate on the Umbraco Cloud Portal and assign it to one of the hostnames you've added:

  1. Go to your project on the Umbraco Cloud portal.

  2. Click Settings -> Certificates. The Manual Certificates window opens.

Your certificates need to be:

  1. In .pfx format.

  2. Must use a password.

  3. Cannot be expired.

  4. Signature algorithm must be SHA256WithRSA, SHA1WithRSA or ECDSAWithSHA256

The .pfx file can only contain one certificate. Each certificate can then be bound to a hostname you have already added to your site. Make sure you use the hostname you will bind the certificate to as the Common Name (CN) when generating the certificate.

Add Manual certificate

  1. Click Add New Certificate.

  2. Select Choose file in the Certificate (.pfx file) field and upload your certificate from your local machine.

  3. Enter the Password for your certificate.

  4. Click Add.

Bind Certificate to a Hostname

  1. Click Add new binding.

  2. Choose your hostname from the Hostname dropdown.

  3. Choose your newly uploaded certificate from the Certificate dropdown.

  4. Click Add.

You've now successfully added your certificate to the Cloud project.

From Custom Certificate to Automatic TLS (HTTPS)

In some cases, you might want to switch from using your custom certificate to using the ones provided by the Umbraco Cloud service.

By removing your certificate from your Cloud project, the Umbraco Cloud service will automatically assign a new TLS (HTTPS) certificate to the hostname.

Did your manually uploaded security certificate expire?

You will need to remove the expired certificate for Umbraco Cloud to assign a new certificate to your hostname(s).
