Set up my Managed SSL Certificate
Note: We offer a Managed SSL service where we install and manage the SSL certificate for you, if you prefer to spend time on other things.
After you purchase a Managed SSL, submit a request for the website you want us to secure.
- Go to your GoDaddy product page.
- Select SSL certificates and then Set up next to the Managed SSL you're setting up.
- The next step depends on where your site is hosted, with GoDaddy or externally.
- Hosted with GoDaddy
- Select Internal Hosting.
- From the Step 2: Pick your hosting product for this certificate dropdown list, select the hosting product where the site you want to secure is hosted.
- For Step 3: Pick the domain for this certificate, either select the site from the list, or select Or enter a domain or subdomain and type the domain or subdomain for the site you want to protect. After you either select or type your site’s domain, select Next.
