Assigning an HTTPS URL to a Project

If you wish to assign an HTTPS URL to a project, you must first enter your project's public IP as an A record. The A record defines the IP address at which a domain can be reached. Once you have changed the A record, the domain will point to your project's webspace. You then have to assign the HTTPS URL to the project. To assign an HTTPS URL to a project, proceed as follows:
