Step 1. Create a certificate

First, go to  

 and enter your domain name then click the Create Free SSL Certificate button.

Note: If you need to create certificates for multiple subdomains, you fill in multiple domains at once, for example yourdomain.com, mail.yourdomain.com, abc.yourdomain.com ).

Then select Automatic FTP Verification .

Then fill in the FTP login information, Directory directory you enter the root of the domain name must be SSL. If the domain name is set as domain addon or subdomain then you must enter the correct path of that domain, and select Download Free SSL Certificate to complete.

You can use manual verification or DNS for verifying.

After the information, you enter is correct, it will give you SSL certificate information as follows:

You save that and go back to the cPanel panel of the host to do the next step.

Step 2. Install the SSL certificate into cPanel

Now go to your host’s cPanel panel and look for the SSL / TLS entry.

You should be able to edit now. We do have an existing page on this already, http://wiki.helionet...SSL_Certificate

Perhaps create a new page on how to do it with your method since yours varies quite a bit from the existing one?

However, for users on Ricky and soon on Johnny you can just use the AutoSSL feature giving you free cPanel signed SSL certificates.

Johnny had AutoSSL enabled accidentally when it was recently rebuilt. We've never offered it on Johnny, and removed it when it was noticed. We don't offer it on Johnny due to the amount of load that SSL causes. AutoSSL use a decent amount of resources to process certificates and all the actual SSL connections to websites are very resource hungry (when compared to plain HTTP).

 

SSL does work on Johnny if a user provides their own certs, but not providing the certificates helps reduce load by reducing the number of people on that server who use SSL connections to only those who make the effort to set it up.
