What is an SSL certificate? An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server using SSL technology. It provides protection for the data your customers enter into your online store and allows different programs in a client-to-server configuration to communicate with each other without being tapped and tampered with. It is extremely important for any online business to have such a protocol.
If you already have an SSL certificate for your primary domain, log in to your Control panel, go to the Settings section > Domains and click on Manage SSL
You will see automatically generated data that you can edit and if there is an empty field, you should type the required data. In order to put an existing SSL certificate for your domain, you must first click Generate.
You will then be able to paste the 4 files that the certificate has -> Certificate (CSR), Certificate: (CRT), Private Key (KEY), and Certificate Authority Bundle: (CABUNDLE) into the corresponding 4 fields.
* If you do not have an SSL certificate, you can buy it from the SSL provider you prefer and use this article to install it.
* If you are having difficulty installing or purchasing an SSL certificate for your domain, we can perform a third-party SSL installation on your behalf, for the appropriate payment.
Although you can purchase the certificate from an outside source, we do recommend giving our internal Let's Encrypt Certificate a go! The certificate itself is free, the only fee is for the automation.
