A website which transpass credibility is a key point for every online radio station.
More than that, today is impossible to talk in credibility without think in a website with a SSL certificate.
Don’t you know what is a SSL certificate?
Read this post on our blog, where we have listed the advantages of this tool and how it works.
On this tutorial we will explain how to install a SSL certificate on your online radio station.
How to install a SSL certificate on your online radio station
The SSL certificate is provided without any additional costs on your BRLOGIC platform.
It means that the certificate will work from the beggining, when your account is created.
The SSL certificate works both on website and the audio streaming.
SSL certificate for your own domain
The setup of your own domain is easy, and the certificate will be installed automatically.
If you have registered your own domain with us, don’t worry!
The setup will be made by us, and all you need to do is wait a few minutes.
If you already have your own domain registered in another host, you just need to set the nameservers normally.
Once the propagation was completed, the SSL certificate will be activated.
Is important to note that this setup need to be done in less than 72 hours.
If it take more than that, the domain will be unlinked from the website, and you’ll need to link it again on your BRLOGIC account.
SSL certificate for subdomains
The only case when an additional step is needed to install the SSL certificate is to a subdomain pointing.
To set up your subdomain we will provide 2 CNAME address which must be added on your DNS Zone.
The first CNAME will in fact point your subdomain to your website.
The second CNAME is needed to validate your SSL certificate.
Both CNAME addresses must be added correctly on your DNS Zone to your website works with your subdomain and to the SSL certificate validate.
This setup must be done in less than 72 hours.
If it take more than that, your will need to link your subdomain again on your BRLOGIC account.
SSL certificate for audio streaming
As well the free address, your own domain and subdomains, the audio streaming link works with a SSL certificate too.
It means that your online radio station will work 100% in HTTPS, right from the start.
Audio streaming with SSL certificate are more compatible with radio indexers, apps and other websites, what means that your radio station have a bigger potencial to receive even more listeners.
My website still don’t have HTTPS
This is a problem!
Websites without SSL certificates deal with some penalties.
The most obvious is the “Not secure” message, shown on the web browser.
However, some other problems are even worse.
For instance, Google and other search mechanisms prioritize websites with a SSL certificate, what means that websites that still runs on HTTP can lose positions.
In addition, sites that still traffic over HTTP do not encrypt data exchanged between server and user, which can be a gateway to larger issues involving the privacy of user data.
