Adding your own SSL Certificate

Expertise level: Easy
 
 
SSL stands for "Secure Socket Layer". When you are using https:// to access your site, the data is transferred in an encrypted format . This can be useful for highly sensitive data transfers like credit card numbers, passwords etc. 
 
To add your SSL certificate, follow these simple steps:
  1. Connect to your server using SFTP.
  2. Go to /var/www/ssl directory
  3. Create a directory with the same name as the site’s domain name
  4. Upload the certificate, the key and bundle in that directory.
  5. Rename the files with this naming convention:
    web.key
    web.crt
    bundle.crt
  6. Open a technical ticket to activate the SSL certificate.
