Add a hostname with a default certificate (LA)

Easily secure client requests by creating and provisioning a certificate when you add a hostname to a property.

Before you begin

In Property Manager, create a brand new property or edit an existing one.

How to

  1. In the Property Manager Editor, in the Property Hostnames panel, click Add.

  2. In the Add Hostname(s) field, enter the hostnames you want to use and click Next. The names don't need to contain https://, just the domain.


You can add multiple hostnames by pasting them into the field. If you do, each value needs to be separated by a space or comma, or contained on separate lines. Duplicate names are skipped.

  1. Select the appropriate IP version, based on what your application or site can support, and click Next.

  2. To request a new certificate, make sure Automatically request certificates is On.

  3. Select the Deployment network. You can choose Standard TLS or Enhanced TLS. For more information, see Compare the security levels.

  4. Click Validate Certificate Domains to verify that you own the domain of the hostnames you are adding. The list displays the ACME CNAME records you need to add to your DNS.

  5. Click Copy all DNS Records. The records are copied in a comma-separated format.

  6. Copy the records to your DNS.

  7. Click Next.

  8. If applicable, specify the desired Mapping Solution. If none of the following apply to you, skip to the next step.


You can only select one Mapping Solutionβ€”you can enable Edge IP Binding, or select a Use Case, but not both.

  1. Click Next. A table displays, containing the edge hostnames.

  2. Click Submit.

  3. Read the instructions in the Success message, and click Close when you're done.

Certificate renewal

Default certificates will renew automatically as long as the _acme-challenge record in your DNS points to the provided target validation hostname.
