I cannot verify my domains which are registered with google.com


#1

trying the command /letsencrypt-auto certonly and filling in my domain fails to connect. I do not have a webhost only the domain registered with google.com

If you don’t have a web host, what do you want an SSL cert for ? or maybe I’m missing something.

You effectively need somewhere to host the files otherwise you can’t effectively get an SSL certificate.

Perhaps I’m misunderstanding. What is your domain name ? and what were the specific errors you were getting ?

Thanks for the response. I have a website in an AWS s3 bucket which has cloudfront in front of it. I would like to upload a custom domain cert to cloudfront. But I do I generate the certificate without a server?

You also might want to checkout this post. I’m certifying via the Vagrant box. You can do the same trick on your side by using a reverse proxy probably.
