Install a SSL certificate on your Simple Hosting instance
It is possible to install Gandi SSL certificates on your simple hosting instance if:
- you have a M-size instance or greater
- possess a certificate and its associated private key
- have the rights to the domain to be protected
- the length of your certificate is equal to 2048 bits as recommended by best practices for websites and applications
To do this, log into your instance management page and on the Websites table click on the little padlock icon:
Once you have done this, you must paste all your SSL Certificate data (not your CSR, but the CRT)
All the lines must be pasted in there, and be sure there is no return at the end of the form.
Then, you need to do the same thing with the private key in the respective field:
If the certificate/private key pair corresponds to the domain to be protected, then you will have finished the process.
The operation only takes a few minutes, and will be ready shortly.
Here is a non-exhaustive list of SSL certificates that are supported by our Simple Hosting offer. If you have a certificate from another provider, feel free to contact our customer support if you would like for us to add an intermediate certificate.
