Google Cloud storage

I use Google cloud storage to host static websites / pages (https://storage.googleapis.com). I have my own domain. Is there a way to install a certbot certificate?

I have access to Google Cloudshell, but the machine I spin-up is temporary (Debian).

I have persistent access (obviously) to the filesystem where my files reside.

Can I install a certbot certificate?

Thanks,

Rookie Bill

Hi @comstock

there is no certbot certificate.

Certificates are created / signed via Letsencrypt. Certbot is one ACME-client to create Certificate keys and Certificate Signing Requests. There are other clients you may use.

Read some basics:

But first: Where runs your webserver with your domain name? Are you able to install a certificate?

If storage.googleapis.com is only a file system, it’s independend from your webserver.


Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):

Thank you for your generous reply and your (fingers crossed) patience.

My domain is comstock.cc. https://crt.sh/?q=comstock.cc

I’m just using storage.googleapis.com to inexpensively make static HTML sites and files web-accessible.

[scratching head:] If there is no webserver sitting between clients and my comstock.cc files, then am I missing THE key component (the webserver) needed to deliver files via httpS?

I don’t think the configuration of my temporary CloudShell VM will be useful, but just in case, see: http://comstock.cc/os-release.txt

Again, many thanks.

Hi,

As you could see in the help ticket, you can only use http when using custom domain and cloud storage.
https://cloud.google.com/storage/docs/troubleshooting#https or you can follow the instructions in that article to spin up a load balancer, add CDN with HTTPS.

Thank you
