The first step in setting up your own SSL certificate is to generate your Certificate Signing Request(CSR), submit a support ticket and include ALL the following information for your SSL Certificate:
- full domain name (including www.)
- name of the organization
- name of the organization unit, ie. company department or section
- state or province
Once you have provided us with that information, we will generate a CSR for your domain, which you will then use when purchasing your SSL certificate. Choose a SSL certificate provider and follow the instructions on their website on how to purchase a SSL certificate.
NOTE: Make sure the common name is set to use your full domain name including the www. in your domain name.
If they ask you for the type of web server we are using, select Apache + OpenSSL.
Once you have been issued your new SSL certificate, update your support ticket with the text of the certificate and we will install the certificate on your domain.
With our new Managed WordPress hosting, SSL is automatically enabled for every domain and includes free a certificate via LetsEncrypt. If you are interested, we can migrate you to Managed WordPress for free, just submit an order form.
