Attention Resellers: If this is your first time installing an SSL for a client, please follow the steps outlined in this article to enable SSL Host Installer via Feature List: https://www.hostdime.com/resources/create-a-feature-list/

 

Step 1: Once you have ordered the SSL certificate and the .CRT files have been issued, log into cPanel

 

Step 2: Go to SSL/TLS

 

Step 3: Click on “Manage SSL sites

NOTE: If you do NOT see the Manage SSL Sites option, this means you must enable it by creating a Feature List via WHM. To create a feature list, please follow the steps outlined in this article: https://www.hostdime.com/resources/create-a-feature-list/

 

Step 4: Copy/Paste your certificate file into the Certificate: (CRT) box and then click “Autofill by Certificate“. This will cause the Private Key to auto-populate if you used the CSR creator inside of cPanel previously.

NOTE: It is important you copy/paste everything from the certificate code “– – – – –BEGIN CERTIFICATE– – – – – all the way down to “– – – – –END CERTIFICATE– – – – –

 

Step 5: Paste the CA Bundle and make sure all of the boxes are filled in before clicking “Install” to complete your installation.
