How to install SSL certificate for website on cPanel

What is an SSL certificate?

An SSL certificate is a small encrypted file containing information about a website or an organization/company. When a certificate is installed on the website server (webserver), it will allow the website to use a secure connection (also known as the HTTPS Protocol) when communicating between the webserver and the user’s browser. When data is transmitted via HTTPS protocol, the data will be encrypted and only the web server containing the private key can decrypt this data.

Details about SSL types and how to authenticate SSL from the company, you can check out the detailed article below:

In this article, AZDIGI will show you how to install an SSL certificate on a website using cPanel, please see the steps below.

Implementation guide

  • Certificate.crt
  • Private.key

Once we have all the certificate files as above, we continue to step 2.

Step 2: Install the certificate on cPanel

Once you have prepared all the certificate files, proceed to add the certificate to the website via cPanel as follows:

You log into your cPanel and go to SSL/TLS section.

Next, select Manage SSL sites.

At the installation interface, select the correct domain to install the SSL certificate in the Domain section. Next in (1) – (2) – (3), you need to paste the contents of the corresponding files in Step 1.

As follows:

  • Certificate: (CRT) (1) <=> Certificate.crt
  • Private Key (KEY) (2) <=> Private.key
