We offer free "SSL Security” (https) for your domain name so we will have "Amazon Web Services" send you a certification to approve. This email will go straight to the admin email on your hosting account. The email comes straight from Amazon Web Services with subject line: Amazon Certificates.

All you have to do is follow the confirmation steps and let the Reverb representative know once you have approved the certification. We will then generate and send you a new domain value to be used when creating the new record within your domain registrar. The value will end with “.cloudfront
