So it’s been a long time dragging our heels on this one but we are finally adding in SSL support for HostedSuite’s local server.
SSL has always existed on hostedsuite.com of course
But doing this for local servers is a lot more challenging. The reason for this is that we can’t reasonably contact GoDaddy (or other SSL cert provider) every time we want to install a new instance of the hostedsuite server at a client’s location.
While the details aren’t final, we are probably going to be using either a form of self signed certificates or we will require customers that want this functionality to purchase an SSL cert from the provider of their choice.
Now, operators would be connecting to something like https://console.mycorporatedomain.com to access their console
We hope to have this functionality ready to go within the next couple of weeks and we will post another blog update with the details once that functionality is completed.
