PREREQUISITES:
+ Your website must be up and running
+ If you do not have a website or your website is not up. Please refer to this post 
 
INSTRUCTIONS:
Step 1: Checking your website has SSL certificates or not by browsing to your website directly
 
(As you can see in the image above, this site has not installed SSL Certification)0
 
Step 2: Navigate to the Shared Hosting administration area of the Dashboard
 
(Click on “cPanel” button to go to the page where you can set up, customize, and construct your website)
 
Remember: If you are using a domain from a thrid-party (This domain is not purchased directly from 1Byte). You need to configure the nameserver of your domain to point to the nameserver of 1Byte as follows
ns1a.1byte.com
ns1b.1byte.com
 
Step 3: At cPanel page, navigate to the Security section
(Click on “SSL/TLS”. This is the place to manage all SSL/TLS certificates)
 
Step 4: Select “Manage SSL Sites”
 
(The “Manage SSL Sites” Hyperlink is located underneath “Install and Manage SSL for your site (HTTPS)” shown above)
 
Step 5: Select your domain
 
 
 
Step 6: When you complete step 5, fields like Certificate (CRT), Private Key (KEY) will be pre-filled by the system for you. Now all you need to do is click the “Install Certificate” button 
 
 

Explaination:

  1. Certificate (CRT) – This is your server certificate that was issued to your domain(s). Note 1: cPanel should automatically fetch the Certificate (CRT) text if you previously uploaded the server certificate in the “Generate, view, upload or delete SSL certificate” section of your SSL/TLS Manager and selected the correct domain name above in the dropdown. Note 2: If you received the certificate in a ZIP file, click “Extract All” and then drag your server certificate into a text editor such as Notepad. This will allow you to copy all text contents needed including “—–BEGIN CERTIFICATE—–” and “END CERTIFICATE—–“.
  2. Private Key (KEY) – This is your private key that was created during the generation process. Note 1: cPanel should automatically fetch the Private Key (Key) text if you previously created the Certificate Signing Request (CSR) in the “Generate, view, or delete SSL certificate signing requests” section of your SSL/TLS Manager and selected the correct domain name above in the dropdown. Note 2: If you made the CSR and private key outside of your cPanel account and failed to save the files, you will have problems proceeding and may need to re-issue the SSL certificate with a newly created key pair.
  3. Certificate Authority Bundle (CABundle) – This is your intermediate certificates that allow browsers and devices to understand who issued your trusted certificate. Note 1: cPanel should automatically fetch the CA Bundle from a public repository. If not, download the appropriate CA Bundle for your certificate. Note 2: If you have multiple intermediate certificates, paste each of them one after another to create the correct certificate chain/path.
 
Congratulations! You’ve successfully installed your SSL certificate! To check your work, visit the website in your browser at https://yourdomain.tld and view the certificate/site information to see if HTTPS/SSL is working properly. Remember, you may need to restart your server for changes to take effect.
 
NOTE:
+ Step 8 is the next step to do if your website does not currently have an SSL certificate.
+ Step 8 can be omitted if your site is secured with an SSL certificate. 
 
Step 8: Go back to “cPanel” page, navigate to the “Security” section and choose “SSL/TLS Status”
 
 
(Check on Domain box to select all domain + sub-domains of your site, then Click on “Run AutoSSL” to install SSL cert)
 
 
Step 9: Checking your website has SSL certificates or not by browsing to your website directly (Do the same as step 1 )

(Now your site is secure, you can see the padlock)
 
END!!!
