In order to expedite the SSL Certificate issuing process. You’re required to have correct contact information on the Whois database for your domain. If your information is not up-to-date, be sure to modify your information before applying for an SSL Certificate.
You also must have a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) generated on your web server. The issuing process is easy as long as you provide all of the right info!
Why Do You Need an SSL?
These days, an SSL is often a requirement to run and maintain a website. Google, for instance, may not even rank your website without a proper, verified SSL. Running a website without any verification is like leaving your house without a phone: don’t do it!
Without an SSL, Google, Firefox, Safari and all other popular browsers may flag your page as not safe. This will make it difficult for visitors to find via their search engines. Moreover, without a SSL, other websites may not want to link back to yours.
This can mean that promoting your site may prove difficult. Essentially, an SSL is a necessary component of building a modern brand and a business.
Be sure to encrypt all sensitive and confidential data before you launch your website.
SSL certificates must be installed on your web server before the SSL Certificates can be activated. End-to-end SSL installation support is possible only in cases where the domain is hosted with GPD Host.
If your domain is hosted with another provider, please contact that provider's support team. Ask for assistance with CSR generation and SSL Certificate installation.
You may also contact our sales and support team. In case you would prefer to host your domain with GPD Host as your end to end provider. Don’t worry, transferring your domain over to us is easy!
Selected SSL Certificate requests may be identified and selected for additional validation by the Certificate Authority. This is done as a necessary security measure. If the request is flagged for validation, the issuing process of your SSL Certificate may be delayed.
