Our Plesk shared hosting accounts (more info) support SSL certificates from us (which we install for you), as well as third-party vendors (which you must install yourself). Here's the process for the third-party SSL cert installation:
If you add a dedicated IP address to your account, contact customer support to finalize its set up.
To complete these steps, you need to have set up your Plesk account and already added the domain name you want to secure with an SSL certificate.
The information you enter in the Settings section must exactly match the information you provide the SSL vendor.
Your certificate signing request displays in the CSR section.
To get your SSL certificate, you need to provide this CSR to the company issuing the certificate.
Once they've issued the certificate, they'll provide you a
CRT file, which is your SSL certificate.
To complete these steps, you need to have the
CRT file provided to you by the company who issued your SSL certificate.
CRTfile from your local machine as the Certificate, and then click Send Files.
That's it! To make sure your SSL is working, you can check it at SSL Shopper.
Unlike some of our other hosting platforms, you do not necessarily need a dedicated IP address to have an SSL certificate on our Plesk shared hosting accounts. This is because it uses the Server Name Indication (SNI) protocol. However, not all browsers support SNI, which means that without a dedicated IP address, some users will not be able to successfully establish a connection over SSL.
