How to Enable a Shared SSL for a Linux Website

Posted by Erin McDuffy on July 11 2016 03:36 PM

If you do not wish to purchase a dedicated SSL certificate for your website, you have the option of using a shared SSL. If enabled, you will use a special URL for any pages that you want to be secured via this SSL. This URL functions as a proxy to the site, which uses the server's SSL certificate to secure traffic to the website.

This article assumes that you are already familiar with how to log in to the customer control panel. If you do not know how to log in or have forgotten your password, please refer to this article first.

  • On the control panel Home tab, click "Manage Website" under the Websites section.

  • Click on "Web Hosting Settings".

  •  Select the SSL tab, then click "Enable SSL".

  • Your new shared SSL URL will be displayed, and should start working within a few minutes.

Note: If you do not have an SSL tab, please contact support and we will assist you.
