How do I get an SSL certificate installed for my vanity domain?
Every event page comes with a unique Splash page URL, but it's a very common practice to use a Vanity URL to connect your page to a custom, white labeled URL that you own.
In other words, instead of your Splash page living on a URL such as myevent.splashthat.com, it would instead reside on a URL like myevent.com or myevent.mycompany.com.
Splash page URLs are all secure - meaning they start with https:// - and ensure an encrypted connection between server and browser, protecting your attendees and their data.
While it's easy to connect your page to a custom domain, that https:// doesn't transfer over automatically.
Many companies have more rigorous security requirements, which requires the installation of an SSL certificate, enabling their URLs to open with https:// prepended.
For our Enterprise accounts, Splash offers an additional service to generate a CSR - the first step in this process. Reach out to our team to hook it up - and for more info + pricing.
Here's how that process works:
- Splash generates a CSR (certificate signing request) that has your company's information in it:
- Country Name
- State or Province Name
- Locality Name (City)
- Organization Name (Company)
- Organizational Unit Name (Section) - This is optional
- Email - This is optional
- Splash sends the CSR back to you.
- Next, take the CSR, generate/purchase a certificate for it, and send it back to Splash.
- Splash installs the certificate on its server.
- Finally, add a record to your domain's DNS Settings that points it to our Vanity Server.
