  • Fast Validation - domain level verification, including your site check and security seal issuing, is performed in a matter of minutes
  • Enterprise-Level Data Encryption - the strength provided by built-in SSL certificates makes your customers feel comfortable with their security

So, to get the built-in SSL certificate, perform the following simple steps:

Note: Built-in SSL is not compatible with public IP address attached to your servers and is applied to the specified environment name domain only (e.g. my-project.jelastic.com for the image above).

To initiate your environment installation, click the Create button (or Apply to adjust the existing one).

Now, upon clicking the Open in Browser button for this environment, you'll see that communication with it is performed over the HTTPS protocol.
