Google SSL Certificate in Netlify

Hello (n00b here)

I have a netlify site ( and have purchased a google domain…

I’m trying to import the SSL api key but the netlify end is asking for PEM certificate?

Thanks in advance !

Hi @coden00b,

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to Netlify’s Support Forums!

We have a Support Guide on custom SSL Certificates here:

We also have our Netlify docs here:

The docs outline what you’ll need in order to use a custom SSL certificate:

To install a certificate, you’ll need:

  • the certificate itself, in X.509 PEM format (usually a .crt file)
  • the private key you used to request the certificate
  • a chain of intermediary certificates from your Certificate Authority (CA)

Let us know if you have any questions.
