PIE, SSL Certificates

Websites hosted on Publish are protected by SSL by default at their publish.illinois.edu/sitename address. Custom domains require additional steps to configure SSL.

When creating a website on Publish.Illinois.Edu, your site is automatically assigned a url of the form https://publish.illinois.edu/sitename.  The default SSL certificate for the Publish server will allow your website visitors to access your site over https.


It is possible to map a Publish website to a custom domain.  When doing so, additional steps are required to configure SSL access for your site. The easiest way to request an SSL certificate for your site is to fill out the PIE - SSL Certificate Request for Custom Domains form.  

You will need your publish URL, custom domain name, and department. There is no longer a charge associated with SSL certificate requests.
