In case you have purchased an SSL Certificate from another provider, you can easily install it with us by following the steps below:

Go to Websites → Manage, search for SSL on the sidebar and click on it:

There, click on Import SSL. Select the domain or subdomain from the dropdown list and insert the values of the keys provided by the SSL issuer:

The custom certificate is usually a compressed folder (eg. a .zip file) where you will find the following files:

  • Certificate - the certificate’s public key, usually a file named domainname.crt
    where "domainname" is replaced with your actual domain

  • Private Key - the certificate's private key, usually the only file with the ending .key on the zipped folder

  • Certificate authority bundle (CABUNDLE) - the file that contains root and intermediate certificates

Use a text editor such as Notepad to open each one, copy the content and paste it into its corresponding section. Next, click on Install SSL and your certificate will be installed!

NOTES:

  • If you don’t see Import and Install options, most likely you already have an SSL certificate on that domain. To install a new certificate, uninstall the existing one first

  • If your SSL is still not valid after installation, please try to reinstall it. If it still doesn’t work, contact your SSL issuer

  • If you need help locating your SSL certificate's files and defining the type of file, please contact your SSL issuer's support
