White label panel via SSL

WMSPanel as white label branded panel is one of the most popular features for customers who show their statistics to client. People like to have ability to present reports via custom domain with custom logo without mention of WMSPanel itself.

Initial access to WMSPanel is done via SSL protocol, so you see "https://" at the beginning of each URL. That improves the security of data transmission between customer browser and our service. When a customer sets up branded panel via white label, we does not have HTTPS access anymore by default. This is because this requires a purchase of SSL certificate and must be done by the customer himself.

What if you want to keep your traffic secured with SSL? You can buy SSL certificate and set up a domain with SSL proxy to our website.

Here are the steps to make your branded panel available via HTTPS. Let's say you want to have branded panel for

  1. Set up domain in your DNS.
  2. In your WMSPanel account go to Settings / Branded panel menu and add 2 domains there: and domain with proper logo.
  3. Bring up SSL proxy at one of the servers in your infrastructure.
  4. Set up domain in your DNS.

If you use nginx web server, make sure you have proxy_set_header parameters configured. Here is an example of nginx parameters:
location / {
  proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;

If you want to have a secure connection between your proxy and WMSPanel use settings like these:
location / {
  proxy_ssl_verify off;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;
  proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
  proxy_redirect off;

That's it. When you go to, your request is proxied to the domain which is handled in WMSPanel as branded domain. So all pages will have proper logo for everyone who accesses the panel via new domain.

You can contact us if you have any questions or if you need to purchase an SSL certificate for your branded panel.
