How to install or configure a free Lifetime SSL and make your website secure

Updated over a week ago

At Hostinger, you get free Lifetime SSL certificates for all of your domains and subdomains when purchasing any of our Web and Cloud hosting plans.

All your domains and subdomains will have their own SSL certificate installed automatically as soon as you add them to your hosting plan.

How to Install Lifetime SSL Manually

If an SSL isn't installed automatically, you can do it manually by following these steps:

1. Make sure that your domain is added to a hosting plan or that your subdomain is created.

2. In the Websites section, find the site in question and click Manage next to it.

3. In the sidebar, search for SSL and open its settings:

The SSL menu item

4. Then, click on Install SSL:

Installing a SSL certificate

If you don’t see the Import SSL or Install SSL options, most likely, an SSL certificate has already been installed on that domain or subdomain. To install a new certificate, uninstall the existing one first 💡

The SSL certificate will be installed within a couple of minutes. Once it's done, you'll see the status Active:

SSL status: Active

If the SSL installation fails, make sure that your domain is pointed to Hostinger servers, wait for the propagation to complete, and reinstall the SSL 💡

Can SSL Certificates Be Reused?

You get free SSL for all of your domains and subdomains hosted with us, so there's no need to worry about reusing certificates.

If you no longer need an SSL certificate on a domain, you can uninstall it. The uninstalled certificate will be deleted, and if needed, a new one can be generated later for the same website.

Since these certificates require that the website is hosted using a Web or Cloud hosting plan at Hostinger, they cannot be transferred to a VPS or another hosting provider.
