Free SSL for SaaS Providers

SaaS providers face many challenges to issue and manage the renewal cycle of their users' SSL certificates, the most common of which is using customer vanity domain in the HTTPS protocol. In the usual way, users of these services cannot use an SSL certificate for their own domain and must choose between using their own branded domain and the provider's encrypted domain. The choice of the SaaS provider's domain can cause serious damage to your marketing and branding degradation.
Understanding this challenge, ArvanCloud has provided the ability to automatically issue and renew SSL certificates for domains that use SaaS services. SaaS providers can get a free and easy SSL certificate for their users with one click and don't have to worry about renewing it.

Setting Minimum TLS Version
Due to possible vulnerabilities in TLS versions lower than 1.2, it is recommended that websites support minimum TLS version 1.3. Compared to previous versions, TLS 1.3 provides a stronger set of ciphers in addition to increasing the speed of establishing a secure connection. By providing the ability to set the minimum version of TLS and supporting TLS 1.3, ArvanCloud makes access via HTTPS impossible for users who use a lower TLS version.
Enabling HSTS Protocol
Supporting the HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) protocol is one of the easiest ways to secure your website, API, or applications. HSTS is a feature of the HTTP protocol that forces browsers to use secure connections for every request they send to your backend servers. With the help of ArvanCloud's advanced HTTPS settings, you can activate the HSTS protocol on your domain with just one click.
Rewriting Files Based on HTTPS
This feature, by rewriting insecure URLs from known hosts to their secure counterparts, in addition to fixing problems and errors of Mixed Content, also increases the efficiency and security of the website.
