Comodo (or Sectigo) SSL certificate can be installed in a couple of easy steps, described below.
Step 1 - Activate the order
When SSL is set up, it has to be verified via email which is sent to the mailbox of email@example.com.
If you happen to not have this mailbox, you can easily create it and resend the verification email by clicking Resend approval email
If you do not have a possibility to create such an inbox, contact our Customer Success team for an alternative verification method
Step 2 - Verify domain
On the website, enter your verification code to the field and click Next. Your domain will be verified shortly.
Step 3 - Download and install certificate
If you wish to install an SSL certificate at Hostinger Shared, Cloud, or WordPress hosting, open your SSL page again and click on Manage in front of the certificate:
And then choose Install:
If you wish to install the certificate on VPS or elsewhere, you would need to download the certificate’s files, which can be done from the SSL page:
For security reasons, the archive with certificate files, which you received by email, does not contain a key. No worries, an archive, which you are downloading from hPanel, provides all the needed files 👍
For the installation process, you would need to follow instructions designed for the control panel you are using. In most panels, you will need to see 3 fields: Certificate, Private Key, and Certificate authority bundle. All the fields need to be filled out in order to successfully install Comodo SSL!
Certificate authority bundle
The certificate’s public key from the file named yourdomainname.crt
The only file with the ending .key on the zipped folder
