Adding a Custom SSL configuration

If you can't or don't want to use Content Delivery Networks when setting up SSL for click and open tracking, then you can setup custom SSL configuration.

Before Adding a Custom SSL configuration, you need to set up a valid link branding on your account.

To add a custom SSL configuration:

  1. Prepare a proxy (like web application, nginx, or Amazon API Gateway) to take all traffic for and forward it to
  2. Set up the proxy to use HTTP or HTTPS. For HTTPS, provide valid SSL certificate for domain.
  3. To forward traffic, set Host HTTP header to domain.
  4. Point the CNAME record to your proxy. For example, CNAME

Don't validate the DNS record more than once, because after changing the CNAME, a second validation fails and the authentication stops working.
