    Cloudflare bought their own CA. This is why they can offer universal SSL. I think any parking company would offer ssl if it was possible and still profitable. Buying an SSL cert for every parked domain isn't a reality.

    I would give you a Google lava lamp and two packs of bubble gum. :)

    Agreed. If landing/parking companies had to buy an SSL cert for each domain they would go out of business.

    Ideally the registrars need to fix their forwarding and all would be well. But if you want people to use your nameservers then some solution needs to be found.

    Nameservers have nothing to do with SSL. It's all done on the webserver.

    Agreed. But you wouldnt point your nameservers to my webservers during testing so I was going to throw those in as an added bonus.

    I'm not sure what you're using for dns right now but if you'd be willing to work with cloudflare you could use that advantage.

    They're easy to integrate into any backend. You deliver the panel, they take care of the rest. Again, it might take a lot of rewriting of your current system but I think in the long run it's worth it.

    I doubt that would work for them as cloudflare isnt going to want to issue them 5 millions SSLs for free. Their "universal SSL" isn't exactly universal. It is just offered to each customer per site from my understanding.

    And their DNS option, is really just a redirection solution in a nutshell. And we can't work with redirection.

    They're not a free option but affordable for what you get for sure. If you're a business in this day and age that shouldn't be an issue. Think of all the customers you're gonna lose in the future. I'd reach out to discuss with them.

    Why would I lose a customer if a parked domain doesn't have SSL on it?

    I would love to know.

    Well you do have options down the road when you move forward with this.

    1a. See if LetsEncrypt will work with you.
    1b(I). Kick your dev team in the butt and make them do it.
    2b(II). Beat the zen garden.
    2. Purchase a CA authority
    3. Get the industry together to work on a common CA for these types of situations with the cost shared.
    4. Ignore

    Google doesn't index parked domains. Any other reasons?

    The second one above I meant to put, but had to edit to add. (before your post)

    From what I know that might be the case. Not sure as I've been running my own DNS for ages.

    Looking at this from a host's perspective cos in the end parking is just some sort of hosting and lots of them offer cloudflare integration.

    Not suggesting I've got the solution, just trying to give some options I'd be looking into if I had the time to explore ;)

    We're currently working on a solution and might be able to introduce SSL on over 1M domains. If the negotiations go well this week we might be able to introduce SSL secured for sale pages next week.

    To be continued...

    Over 99% of those .app domains are without any traffic, except bots.
    I don't see any reasons to overload/downtime the parking servers due to these SSL games...
    I think, regarding monetization (Google PPC) - this should be provided individually... per domains where traffic really exists... for example, $1/domain/mo for SSL cert service.

    In the meantime, wouldnt it be difficult to sell these to prospective buyers if even simple landing pages wont resolve due to ssl issues? Also - how many of these new domains are WHOIS private, plus WHOIS leaning toward privacy anyway... If someone is interested in getting in touch with the domain owner then it may be difficult until the SSL issues are resolved.

    To sell - parking companies are not needed at all...
    Just enable SSL cert at your .app registrar and then URL forwarding to any marketplace lander like Epik or Sedo (when .app will be supported by Sedo)...
    And you may redirect to any lander... in which mode this lander works (http or httpS) - doesn't matter.

    In other words, this Let'sEncrypt or similar - firstly, should be implemented by registrars... to freely use .app domains.
    Instead, we are talking here about various parkings...

    p.s. Registrars and Google just make money...
    They don't care about you at all.

    Can you explain what you did exactly?

    Did not hosted the domains and did not setup the SSL? Only parked them to undeveloped with "that" option enabled?
