Getting started guide: SSL Certificates

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted session between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and encrypted.

SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers. To be able to create an SSL connection the web server requires an SSL Certificate.

How do I use my SSL Certificate

After you have purchased your SSL Certificate, you will receive a notification email within 24 hours, confirming that your SSL Certificate is Ready. Please note that it will take up to 24 hours after notification for the SSL to become active. After the SSL installation is complete, you can connect to your domain via https://www.mydomain.com, the website encrypts the session with a Digital Certificate. Note the URL begins with https:// instead of http://.

If you are NOT hosted by our company, then follow the appropriate instructions below to install your SSL Certificate.

How to Install a SSL on a Web server

After you have created your CSR, purchased your SSL Certificate, and the SSL Certificate validation and processing are complete, you are ready to install your SSL Certificate. The certificate will be provided by email. The SSL Certificate will be an attached text file with encrypted data that your server will use once the certificate is installed. Choose your server type below for more information on installing the SSL.

Creating CSR (Certificate Signing Request)

A CSR or Certificate Signing Request is a block of encrypted text that is generated on the server that the certificate will be used on. It contains all information that will be included in your certificate such as your company name, common name (domain name), locality and country. It also contains the public key that will be included in your certificate. A private key is usually created at the same time that you create the CSR.
