How to Install an SSL/TLS Certificate In cPanel Print

  • 0

The following instructions will guide you through the SSL installation process on cPanel

What You’ll Need

1.Your server certificate: This is the certificate you received from the CA for your domain. You may have been sent this via email. If not, you can download it by visiting your Account Dashboard and clicking on your order.


2. Your intermediate certificates:These files allow the devices connecting to your server to identify the issuing CA. There may be more than one of these certificates. If you got your certificate in a ZIP folder, it should also contain the Intermediate certificate(s), which is sometimes referred to as a CA Bundle. 


3. Your private key: This file should be on your server, or in your possession if you generated your CSR from a free generator tool. On certain platforms, such as Microsoft IIS, the private key is not immediately visible to you but the server is keeping track of it.


Installation Instructions

1. Log in to cPanel

2. Navigate to the SSL/TLS Manager

3. Select “Manage SSL Sites”

4. Select your domain

5. Copy and paste your certificate files

6. Click “Install Certificate”


Congratulations! You’ve successfully installed your SSL certificate! To check your work, visit the website in your browser at https://yourdomain.tld and view the certificate/site information to see if HTTPS/SSL is working properly. Remember, you may need to restart your server for changes to take effect.
