Delete an SSL/TLS certificate in Amazon Lightsail

Last updated: November 29, 2017

You can delete an SSL/TLS certificate that you're no longer using. For example, your certificate might be expired and you've already attached an updated certificate that's validated. If you want to duplicate your certificate before deleting it, you can choose Duplicate from the same shortcut menu in step 5, below.


If the certificate you're deleting is valid and in use, your load balancer will no longer be able to handle encrypted (HTTPS) traffic. Your Lightsail load balancer will still support unencrypted (HTTP) traffic.

Deleting an SSL/TLS certificate is final and can't be undone. You have a limited number of certificates you can create over a 365-day period. For more information, see Limits.

  1. On the Lightsail home page, choose Networking.

  2. Choose the load balancer where your SSL/TLS certificate is attached.

  3. Choose Inbound traffic.

  4. Under Certificates, find the certificate you want to delete.

  5. From the shortcut menu, choose Delete.

  6. Choose Yes, delete.
