Shared Web Hosting customers can use either a shared SSL certificate or a private SSL certificate. Dedicated and Colocated customers will need to use a private SSL certificate.
To Enable Shared SSL
Windows Hosting Plans Control Panel
After installing the certificate, it will give you a a URL to use to reference a page in SSL. This URL points to the "wwwroot" directory of your website and is the same location as "www.your-domain.ext".
Linux Hosting Plans cPanel
To Purchase/Acquire a Private SSL certificate
You can purchase or request an SSL certificate for your domain name / website in two ways, self purchase or provide some information to support and we can handle it for you and just bill the cost of the certificate.
Once the Order is Complete, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what domain the SSL certificate should be installed on and one of our Admins will assist you. If this is for a remotely hosted website, then your SSL Certificate will be emailed to the administrative contact for that domain and then they would need to forward the SSL Certificate to the remote host to install.
