I'm trying to set up https connection in one of my API. I normally make requests to my API through this address: http://vps******.ovh.net:8090

I'd like to be able to make HTTPS requests.

I use the ZeroSSL certificate wizard to build the certificate.

The problem here is that there been already 100 certificates generated for ovh.net subdomains, cause obviously there's a lot of OVH VPS user that requested let's encrypt certificates.

Is there a way to obtain a free certificate from a trusted authority for domains like vps******.ovh.net?

  • partenaires.uphair.fr does not redirect so a certificate with this name will work. If api.uphair.fr redirects (HTTP) to another URL then you need two certificates one for the source and one for the destination (if both are https:// URLs). For me right now your website just shows a generic Microsoft page (no redirect, no certificate problem) – Patrick Mevzek Mar 7 '18 at 20:49
  • For me your api subdomain shows a net error "Server Error in '/' Application." and no certificate. You should check that the certificate files exist in the .wellknown directory – Steve Mar 7 '18 at 22:10
  • Hi Patrick, that's the problem here. I can't generate a certificate for subdomains on ovh from zerossl cause they have a certificate number limit; And obviously some ovh users already generated certificates from zerossl. How can I generate a free certificate from an authority like zerossl for domains like vps******.ovh.net? – Pierrick Martellière Mar 9 '18 at 0:39
  • Hi Steve, this is perfectly normal. I created only a certificate for my api subdomain but I want to know if there's a way to generate one for domains like vps******.ovh.net – Pierrick Martellière Mar 9 '18 at 0:40
  • letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits doesn't have anything about 100 certificates per domain. The limit is actually 20 per week. The only limit of 100 is the number of hostnames that can be included in a single certificate. – Stephen Ostermiller Mar 9 '18 at 11:57
