Move cert to other host or IP


My domain currently runs on ip, we plan to host it on AWS EC2, how to move the certificate to new IP?
Can I just change the A Record and recreate new cert on AWS?

Need help

Hi @winanjaya

yep, that should work.

Please read some basics:

Select a client

install the client on your new machine, then switch the A record, then create a new certificate -> small downtime.

PS: There

is only the Apache Test site visible.

Yes, for now it is shows only apache page.

Thanks a lot for your advise.

Note that if it’s necessary, you can also copy the certificate and private key files from the old server to the new server, because the certificate is not specific to a server or IP address, only to a domain name (and the same certificate can be used on multiple machines at the same time).

However, getting a fresh certificate with software on the new server can be useful to ensure that your configuration there can get certificates in the future (because you’ll need to do that on an ongoing basis in the future).
