How to install SSL certificate on Linux Shared Hosting for a domain name | ResellerClub

SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details. When you install SSL certificate on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secured connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, an SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins. ResellerClub aims to offer various security features for a website through its SSL certificate plans that can be easily installed and issued. (https://goo.gl/stBVHf)

With Google updating its Chrome web browser to Chrome 68 so as to flag all HTTP websites and move towards a secure HTTPS web by default, it thus becomes essential to install SSL certificate for your website.

To know how to install SSL certificate in Linux for a domain name that is hosted on the shared Linux hosting packages, you need to first purchase an SSL certificate. You can purchase an SSL from your Reseller Account or from any SSL provider.

To install SSL on shared hosting Linux, it first needs to be issued. To do so, after the order is placed you need to generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) from the cPanel for the hosting package. To generate CSR, please follow the steps mentioned below:
Login to the cPanel for the domain
Under the Security tab click on SSL/TLS option
Generate, view, or delete SSL certificate signing requests.
Enter the details and click on Generate

Note: Please ensure that the email address being used is a valid one as the certificate will be issued on this email address.

After the CSR is generated, you need to provide the CSR to the SSL provider to issue and install SSL on shared hosting. If the SSL is purchased under your Reseller Account, you can go to the overview page of the order and click on “Issue Certificate”. Enter the CSR on the page and select the verification Email to be used for verification of the SSL. You can select any one of the following Emails:
webmaster@yourdomain.com
hostmaster@yourdomain.com
admin@yourdomain.com
administrator@yourdomain.com
postmaster@yourdomain.com
Admin Email for the domain visible on the whois lookup

On submitting the CSR you will receive a verification Email on the Email address mentioned while submitting the CSR. You can complete the verification process and the SSL will be issued. It takes 24 hours for the SSL to be issued.

Once you receive the SSL, here’s how to install SSL certificate on Linux with the help of the following steps mentioned below:
Login to the cPanel (https://goo.gl/K7Je55)
Click on SSL/TLS option under the Security tab
Click on Manage SSL sites.
Select the Domain from the drop-down.
Enter the Certificate file that is received
Enter the Private Key (You can locate the Private Key by clicking on the “Generate, view, upload, or delete your private keys.” option under SSL/TLS option in the Security section in cPanel)
Enter the CA Bundles received in the Email
Click on Install
