How to install an SSL Certificate

IMPORTANT NOTE: SSL CERTIFICATES ARE ONLY POSSIBLE ON OUR BUSINESS PRODUCTS AND REQUIRE THAT YOU SET UP A DEDICATED IP FOR THE DOMAIN

After you purchase your certificate, and the SSL certificate validation and processing are complete, you are ready to install your SSL Certificate.

Your certificate will normally be provided via email or will be available to download via the vendors control panel. The SSL certificate is normally provided as a text file with encrypted data that your server will use once the certificate is installed.

Before you begin the installation, we recommend that you make a backup of the certificate and store it in a safe place.

1. Login to your Surftown control panel.
login


2. Choose the domain from Web Management.


3. Click on ‘Import SSL Certificate’.


4. Insert the ‘Privat Key’ in the first field & the ‘Certificate’ itself in the last field.


5. Now click on ‘Save’.

 

The SSL Certificate is now installed.

How to install an intermediate certificate

If the SSL Certificate was not issued by a trusted CA (certificate authoritie), the connecting device (e.g., a web browser) will then check to see if the certificate of the issuing CA was issued by a trusted CA, and so on until either a trusted CA is found.

1. Select the ‘Edit SSL’ button.


2. Scroll down to the field named ‘Certificate Chain File’ and insert the CA Certificate.


3. Lastly click on ‘Install’.
