NakedSSL

Hassle-free SSL clothes for your naked domains.

get it

Most of the existing PaaS out there let you use your custom domain with SSL, but lots of DNS and domain providers still do not allow CNAME or ALIAS records on the naked domain, which makes it hard –or impossible– to install an SSL certificate and redirect all the traffic on your naked domain without having a custom IP. NakedSSL came to fix that.

Hello, can I use this if I'm using a web builder or will having two a records pointing to different IPs conflict?

@daniel_roger_casanova Hi Daniel! You can use it for sure :) You just need to ensure that your naked domain (yourdomain.com) is pointing to the IP that NakedSSL gives you, while the "www" version (www.yourdomain.com) is pointing to the web builder.

Including a short "how it works" on the homepage wont be a bad idea.

@kehers Hi Opeyemi! Really good point, thank you! Although this is a very first version that we built in barely 4 weeks focusing just in the basics, that's one thing we still need to add for sure :).

I think this may have come a bit late for me as I resolved the issue with a crappy .htaccess hack, but I run my stuff on Heroku and it was very difficult to get all traffic to redirect to the SSL version of my site. I'll check this out for sure.

@mickc79 Hi Mick! That is exactly the issue we've been running over and over again, so we decided to give it a try to solve it :) If you decide to use it we would love to hear your feedback!

@mickc79 We leverage AWS SES for transactional emails, so sometimes they might take a couple of minutes to send them :) Or maybe it went to SPAM, could you please check it? In any case, if you haven't got anything in the next 5-10 mins just write us to hello@nakedssl.com and we can confirm your account from our dashboard.

@nakedssl @jespejo getting an error trying to add domain: "The redirection field format is invalid"

@nakedssl @jespejo I think it may be because I have a .rocks TLD

Hey @alexandergerund & @jespejo, Can you tell us more about why you wanted to build this?

Jesús EspejoMaker@jespejo · Partner Tech & Strategy @ okay bueno
@alexandergerund @jacqvon Hi Jacqueline! We built it to solve a simple problem: while it's a good practice to redirect your naked domain to the "www" version of it (more info here: https://www.yes-www.org/why-use-...), it's not easy to do it under SSL when using PaaS like Google App Engine, Heroku or Now.sh, as lots of DNS management services are still a bit limited on that. We stumbled upon this issue a few times already and although is pretty easy to solve, it's tedious and requires some time, so we decided to create a service to automate it for ourselves – and that finally turned into this product.
