Install a Let’s Encrypt TLS certificate

A Let’s Encrypt TLS certificate is available by default for any domain that has been added to an environment’s VIP Dashboard and has DNS updated to point to VIP.

  • Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) certificates are issued for newly installed or renewed Let’s Encrypt certificates.
  • RSA certificates can only be issued by installing a custom TLS certificate.
  • The “www” and the “non-www” versions of a domain must be added separately to the VIP Dashboard. Each version of the domain requires its own Let’s Encrypt certificate to be installed.


Domains have specific application and environment associations.

  1. Navigate to the VIP Dashboard for the application that the domain is associated with.
  2. Select the environment that the domain points to (e.g., Production, Develop) from the dropdown located at the upper left of the dashboard.
  3. Select “Domains & TLS” from the sidebar navigation at the left of the screen.
  4. A button labeled “Install Certificate” will be displayed to the right of domains that do not yet have a TLS certificate.
  5. Select the “Install Certificate” button to access and select the “Let’s Encrypt” option in the dropdown.
  6. A confirmation message will appear at the bottom of the dashboard screen when the Let’s Encrypt TLS certificate has been installed.
