Move a secure hostname to a different network

You can move your property hostname from the less-secure Standard TLS network to the more-secure Enhanced TLS network (or vice versa).


If you need to use a new custom certificate, set it up, first. It can take from 3-6 hours to complete, based on the level of security.

  1. In the Property Manager Editor, in the Property Hostnames panel, select the hostname.

  2. In the Actions column, select > Edit New Version.

  3. Keep the same IP version, and click Next.

  4. If the original certificate is a default certificate (secure by default), make sure that Automatically request certificate is set to On, and change the Deployment network. Choose Standard TLS or Enhanced TLS.

  5. If the original certificate is a custom certificate, make sure that Automatically request certificate is set to Off, and select the new certificate from the list of available certificates. If the certificate that you want to use is not in the list of certificates, use the Certificate Provisioning System in Control Center to create it.

  6. Click Submit.

  7. Read the instructions in the Success message, and click Close when you are done.

Next steps

This process applies to an existing property that you edit to make this change. To apply it, you also need to perform the following steps:


You have three days

The old certificates will stop working in three days. Make sure that you complete these steps within those three days.

  1. Activate your updated property on the staging network.

  2. Test it thoroughly.

  3. Activate the property on the production network to go live with the changes.

  4. Add new CNAME records for the edge hostnames to your DNS. This needs to be done because you changed the network between Standard TLS and Enhanced TLS.
