Glitch currently does not support adding new custom domains
Existing custom domains will continue to work in their current setting.
If you remove your existing domains, they cannot be re-added.
The feature is coming back, and we’ll let you know when we have a schedule for that.
On March 1, 2023, Glitch creators reported that SSL certificates of newly added domains were not working (ie. https was not working). The third-party service we were using to provide this feature has been shut down and will remain so indefinitely. Until the Glitch team can rebuild this functionality, we will be temporarily removing the “Add Custom Domain” feature.
We do not yet know the timeframe for restoring access to the Custom Domain feature, but will share when we do. Current users who have already added a custom domain in the past will still be able to use their customer domains, as this incident only impacted the new creation of SSL certificates. That being said, if you remove your domain from a Glitch app, you will not be able to re-add it.
Do you have an ETA of when the functionality may be rebuilt, I might consider writing a tutorial on how people can get similar functionality through proxying through cf workers.
I’m also supposing that since many domains point to https://glitch.edgeapp.net/ projects that had a custom domain before may stop working? Perhaps the team can come to an agreement with the fly.io team perhaps to point glitch.edgeapp.net to a dedicated glitch ip to maintain backward compatibility.
Somehow, the domains I registered with Glitch on Mar 2 (a day after the broken certs were reported) just… randomly got their certs around ~6PM PT (after checking, cert says that it was issued 2023-03-08 00:31:56 GMT)? No idea how or why, they just…did.
Just thought it might be a good idea to bring it up here.
Hi - so we are actively working with the SSL cert provider to see if we can get things working again asap at least for existing domains, fortunately things are happening quite quickly! But we want to be careful about considering this resolved officially - once we’re confident things are back to normal, we’ll make that call.
