iWeb's Incapsula service will lead you through a simple process of supporting SSL. It will automatically identify when web sites that support SSL traffic (HTTPS) are added to the service. To allow Incapsula to support SSL traffic for these web sites, a certificate will need to be generated for your domain that will be hosted on Incapsula servers. In this process you are requested to approve the creation of such a certificate by Incapsula's certificate provider.
The process of adding SSL support involves three simple steps:
- Within 24 hours of adding the web site you will receive an email from GlobalSign, the SSL certificate provider for Incapsula, requesting approval to generate an SSL certificate for your domain. To approve this request simply reply with "yes" in the message body.
- After your approval Incapsula will provision the service to support SSL on your domain. This process can take up to 24 hours.
- Once the process is completed, you will be notified through an email and you will be able to proceed to the final step of adding your website to the Incapsula service.
You can also choose to add your web site to Incapsula without SSL support. However, any user that browses your site using SSL may receive a warning from his browser.
