WordPress Manager enables you to install an SSL certificate and configure it for working on your website with just a click. Before installing the certificate, you need to select the desired type of installation in WordPress Manager by SuperHosting. After accessing the SSL (Let's Encrypt) menu, you will see which WordPress installation has been selected and whether there is an  info-iconactivated SSL certificate for it.

info-iconImportant: For the certificate to be installed the website's domain shall be pointed to your hosting account.

Configure installation with SSL (https)

The option "Configure installation with SSL (https)" ( ! ) has been selected by default. The installer will configure the SSL certificate on your WordPress website.

Installing and configuring SSL certificate for WordPress

Install the certificate by clicking "Install".

Upon successful installation and configuration you will get a confirmation message.

With the View option you can view details about the installed certificate such as issuer, expiry date and domain name.

You can deactivate the SSL certificate from the "Deactivate" option.

info-iconNote: You can also delete the certificate from this option. However, it is possible that it is also being used by other applications, loaded through the domain of this WordPress Installation. For example: mysupersite.com/joomla, mysupersite.com/dir/cms or others. Deleting an SSL certificate might affect these applications' activities. If you wish to migrate from HTTPS to HTTP, do not check the "Remove certificate" option.
