How do I configure/issue an SSL certificate?

The next step after purchasing an SSL certificate is activation. In order to do this, you'll first need to have a CSR code generated on your server by your hosting provider. You may also generate one yourself.

Once you have a CSR code generated, login to your account and start the activation:

  • After successfully you will see your dashboard look like below-

  • Click Services or Hover your mouse over menu Services in the upper left corner, then select My Services.

  • Then click to your active product
  • If you still not issued your certificate then you will see a link to configure your ssl "Go to the SSL configure wizard"
  • Enter (or cut-and-paste) your CSR code and choose the web server type from the drop-down menu. Once done, click “Submit”. NOTE: In this step, if you are activating a multi-domain certificate, you need to specify the additional domains you wish to include in the issued certificate.

  • Be sure that the information submitted in the CSR code is correct before proceeding. On the next page, select Email validation, HTTP-based validation or DNS-based validation as the domain control validation method from the dropdown list.

  • Then choose any verification method you prefer.

  • Click Continue.
