Have you updated your Synology to the latest DSM 6? If you haven’t done it yet, here is reason to get you started.
I have been wanting to do this for a long time, but I never managed to figure out how to do it until now.
- You need to have your own domain name pointing at your synology. Follow this guide to learn how.
Once you have done that, here is what you do.
Navigate to Security and then click on certificate:
You will have the self-signed Synology certificate available.
Let’s add a certificate for the domain name you created in the previous step:
- Click on Add
- Select Add new certificate
Note, If you get an error while obtaining the certificate, you need to open port 80/443 in your router (Thanks hades2003 for the tip):
Select, Get a new certificate from Let’s encrypt.
To create your certificate, you need to:
- Add your new domain (or subdomain): ds.example.com or example.com
- Add your email
- Enter your old DDNS address: mydomain.synology.me
Now that the new certificate has been created, click on it and select “configure”:
Click on each service and change to your new certificate:
Now, log out of your synology and login using your new domain name. You should see this:
One last change:
- Navigate to Network
- DSM settings
- It is recommended to change your Http and https port numbers (you can do it here)
- Check: automatically redirect http to https , so all your logins and user’s logins will be secured
And you are done!!
