After you request a Standard Assurance SSL certificate, we verify that you control the domain name in your request by checking your GoWebsite account and publicly available records in the WHOIS database.
We also request some customers manually verify that they control their domain names. For information on that process, see Verify domain ownership (HTML or DNS).
Usually the verification process takes less than 1 business day. However, manual verification processes are dependent on the user completing the task.
If you're looking for help understanding what we need you to do next, you can find our support number in your SSL control panel. It displays on the right under the progress indicator.
After verifying you control the domain name, your next step depends on where you're using the certificate:
|VPS or dedicated server you control||Download my SSL certificate files|
|Any other GoWebsite product||We'll finish the SSL installation for you - so there's nothing else you need to do!|
