I have a sub-domain alias set up like:
i.mysite.com which has a CNAME record connecting it to:
mybucket.objects-us-west-1.dream.io for DreamObjects. My plan is to eventually migrate everything over to DreamCompute/DreamObjects.
However, I cannot get a Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate for that
i.mysite.com sub-domain alias. I contacted Dreamhost Support and they say it’s not possible to get Let’s Encrypt either, so the alias is pretty much useless when used on my site that is entirely HTTPS. My only solution is to use an URL like
mybucket.objects-us-west-1.dream.io , which has already changed once in the past and is going to be a major SEO problem, as Google will not see these images on my own domain name anymore either, and if the URL changes again in the future, it’s going to be more setting up redirects when 3rd-party sites link back to my image URLs. This isn’t going to work for me.
The ideal solution is Let’s Encrypt on a permanent sub-domain (
i.mysite.com) that can simply be CNAME updated whenever the CDN URLs change.
Dreamhost Support says that it may be possible to get SSL for
i.mysite.com by using something called CloudFlare with a free CloudFlare account. Does anyone know how to do this on DreamCompute?
