Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Where do I install SSL certificate?

Click SSL/TLS Certificates under the Websites and Domains heading for the domain name you want to use. Add SSL Certificate by clicking. Enter a Certificate name, fill out the details in the Settings section, and then click Request.

Open the cPanel control panel and log in. Locate the SSL/TLS Manager and click it. Select Generate, View, Upload, or Delete SSL Certificates from the menu. Click the Browse button to locate your Primary Certificate under the Upload a New Certificate section (yourdomain).
