SSL (Secure Socket Layer)


Can I purchase an SSL from a third party?

SSLs purchased from any DNS provider, such as GoDaddy, are not compatible with our system. If you wish to add an SSL certificate to your website, you can purchase one through our built-in SSL service.


How do I get an SSL from my website? 

You can purchase an SSL for your custom domain by visiting the Domains tab under Account Settings. The current cost of our SSL is $15.00 US and will last one year from the install date.

  1. Before you get started with installing your SSL, please note the following: 

    - When purchasing an SSL, we recommend that you only purchase one for your Primary Domain. You DO NOT need an SSL for every domain name you have. Under Domainstab, your Primary Domain will be the domain that has a filled in star icon () next to it. If you have followed the steps in our Going Live instructions, all of your domains should be directed to your Primary Domain, which ensures that all your web traffic will go through the same domain with your SSL applied.


    - The A Record of your custom domain will have to be has to be pointed to our new IP address. To set this up, please log into your DNS account (the company in whom you purchased your custom domain from), or contact your DNS company directly, and set your A Record (sometimes just called the 'A' record or @ record) of your base domain and 'www' subdomain to our new IP address of 161.47.102.211
