Installing Third-Party SSLs in cPanel Accounts GoDaddy

GoDaddy cPanel accounts (shared hosting and servers) support SSL certificates from GD (which they install for shared hosting customers), as well as third-party vendors (which you must install yourself).

Here’s the process of the third-party SSL cert installation:

Get a Dedicated IP Address (Shared hosting only) – Though you don’t need a dedicated IP address to install an SSL on your cPanel account, having one ensures all visitors can successfully establish an SSL connection.

Generate a CSR — You must provide the company providing your SSL certificate a certificate signing request (CSR) from your cPanel shared hosting account.

Upload and install your SSL certificate — After receiving the SSL certificate, you need to upload it to your shared hosting account, and then “turn it on” for the site you want to secure.

Generating a CSR

To complete these steps, you need to have set up your cPanel account and already added the domain name you want to secure with an SSL certificate.

To Generate a CSR

Login to cPanel (Shared Hosting/Server).
In the Security section, click SSL/TLS Manager.
Under Certificate Signing Requests (CSR), click Generate, view, or delete SSL certificate signing requests.
Complete the fields in the Generate a New Certificate Signing Request (CSR) section, and then click Generate.
Your certificate signing request displays in the Encoded Certificate Signing Request section.

To get your SSL certificate, you need to provide this CSR to the company issuing the certificate.

Once they’ve issued the certificate, they’ll provide you a CRT file, which is your SSL certificate.

To Activate Your Certificate

In the Certificates on Server section, in the section for the domain you want to use, click (Install).
From the Domain menu, make sure you select the domain you want to secure.
Click Install Certificate.
