How to attach ssl certificate from lightsail to route 53

0

I have a lightsail instance and I create a ssl certificate from my lightsail account. I also have create multiple hosted zones in route 53. Now I want to attach that lightsail certificates to my domains. I already add the CNAME records to my domain. Certificate Status is showing "Valid, not is use." but still my domains are not open with "https". Please suggest me what to do or something missing by me.

Hello.
SSL certificates issued by ACM cannot be directly configured in Lightsail.
Therefore, it is necessary to use commands such as those in the following document or set up a load balancer or other device to configure SSL certificates.

Reference documents for configuring load balancers and distributions are listed below.

  • Hi Riku, thanks for your valuable answer but I think that this could not help me. Because I didn't create certificate in ACM. While I create my ssl certificate in AWS lightsail instance -> Account -> Account -> Certificate tab. this certificate gives me CNAME records to add into my domain records. And I already have hosted zone in route 53. So I added that records into my domain hosted zone. but still my website is not open with secure connection. this is the url - http://kiyanainfotech.com/

    Along this my website is not in wordpress. I developed this in .Net MVC 4.8.1 I hosted this on IIS server of remote system which I purchased through AWS lightsail. You got my point. If you can then please help me to get SSL or guide me if I am doing this incorrectly.

If you do not wish to use Load balancer or Distribution with your instance, you can try Let's Encrypt to issue a free certificate that works with IIS in windows. There are couple of clients according to their official website that can help setup certificate: https://letsencrypt.org/docs/client-options/#clients-windows-/-iis .

In addition, make sure you do the following:

  • Create a DNS A record that points your domain to the IP address of your windows instance. Make sure you have a static IP attached to your instance.
  • Open port 443 for HTTPS for your windows instance: You can do this in Lightsail console by navigating to Networking tab of your instance, and then add IPv4 rule to allow HTTPS.
