When installing an SSL certificate on your site, you will also need an Encoded Private Key which is created when you generate your Certificate Signing Request (CSR). SiteAdmin provides you with quick and easy access to locate the key that matches your CSR that was used to purchase the SSL certificate with just a couple quick steps.

  • Log into SiteAdmin for the domain you wish to install the SSL certificate on and click on “SSL/TLS Manager” in the “Security” section of SiteAdmin.
