How it works

Servr uses globally-distributed reverse proxy service to route traffic to the domains added into our network.

When a domain is added to Servr, our system will validate it's correctly pointing to our global endpoint either by a CNAME or A Record. Once validated, our back-end automatically creates an SSL Certificate for it and will redirect traffic to your defined target over HTTPS. Servr takes care of the entire SSL lifecycle. From private key creation and protection through domain validation, issuance and renewal. Check our getting started guide to learn how to add your first domain to Servr.

The Servr process: Step by Step

  1. A new domain is added to Servr either via our dashboard or API.
  2. Our back-end validates if the domain is pointing to our global endpoint.
  3. Once validated, a SSL Certificate is created for it.
  4. The changes are deployed to all instances of our reverse proxy service.
  5. Traffic is routed within the domain and its target over HTTPS.
  6. From here, our system will take care of renewals and rotation of the SSL Certificate.

Every new domain and SSL certificate takes only a few seconds to be deployed within our network after the DNS records have been validated.

Fast and Reliable

Instances of our service are deployed in many data centers across the world. Our global endpoint works with the one closest to your end users' location to route traffic, making it low latency and blazing fast. This high-redundancy approach makes our network fault-tolerant and we guarante high availability for all of our plans.

Common problems for SaaS Providers when supporting Custom Domains:

Unsecure but custom domain

Custom domains without SSL lack the performance benefits of SSL and secure data transfer, making them vulnerable to snooping and content modification or injection.

Secure but unbranded domain

Domains with SSL enabled through a SaaS provider lack a custom domain, resulting in brand degradation and lower SEO rankings.

Secure and custom domain

Providing encrypted and branded domains often means manually managing SSL lifecycles, long deployment times and overhead costs, or building a complex and expensive in-house solution
