SSL Iki.fi via Amazon Certificate Manager

As https://crt.sh/?q=%25.iki.fi testifies, https://hendry.iki.fi is secured by SSL using the AWS Certificate Manager.

First you need to get a mail server running upon the A/MX field and answer emails to webmaster@XXXX.iki.fi. I did this quickly by getting Postfix running on an VPS with mydestination = hendry.iki.fi and then aliasing to forward to my email address that I read. Amazon will send a link you need to activate from your AWS account.

Then I setup a hendry.iki.fi hosted zone on Route53, Amazon Web Service's DNS control panel.

Once that's done, I then configure iki.fi with the AWS name servers for my hosted zone.

Notice the string ei-mulle-dns-secondarya to the CNAME-tietue field and it will disable the zone transfer checks.

Special thanks to Tero Kivinen for his excellent work at http://www.iki.fi/, an incredible lifetime redirection service, typically used by *.helsinki.fi alumni.
