Here’s my current set-up:
I have a Cloud host set-up that currently just runs on the IP assigned to it. I have a vhost set-up (nginx) for api.mysite.com (can’t disclose real domain) and I just set-up the domain matching to the IP in my Hosts file.
Am I able to use LE SSL doing it this way? It’s just while testing, but eventually when it’s Live it will run correctly on LE with a real domain.
