How to confirm I own the subdomain for getting SSL?

Postby fiorillo » Sat Mar 23, 2019 10:16 pm

I have been following the directions in other threads on getting a certificate for my subsonic server. I am premium and have a subdomain. Namecheap requires I verify I own the domain, but I don't know how to verify it from any of the 3 options.
I don't have a subsonic.org email, my subdomain is not listed in CNAME, and I don't see a way to add a path to subsonic's server to upload a verification file. Please help! I am running it on Windows 7 Pro.

No experience with Windows & Namecheap - I'm using Linux, Duckdns & Letsencrypt; however I expect that you can do something similar in the Windows world:

    1. Setup a webserver for your subdomain (I'm using nginx, maybe IIS for Windows?)
    2. Get a SSL certificate from the CA (there are many scripts for Letsencrypt to automate issue & renewal)
    3. Import the certificate to Subsonic - I found this information useful https://gist.github.com/alvarow/b691da8 ... 845782f081

My issue is step 2. Namecheap requires me to verify that I own the subdomain. I can do it via email, http, or CNAME. Given I don't own or have access to subsonic.org I'm not sure how to do any of them. Would it be to setup IIS and place the verification file in the path they specify?

I doubt that you can use a subsonic.org subdomain, your need a certificate for your namecheap subdomain.

A quick search on namecheap gives this page https://www.namecheap.com/support/knowl ... -in-iis-10.
