Can I install a third-party SSL certificate?


Yes: if you have an existing external or third-party SSL certificate you can install this at Fist Host.

Your certificate provider will need to provide the following sections for us to be able to install the SSL certificate:

  • Certificate
  • Private Key
  • CA Bundle / Intermediate Certificate

These details will need to be entered within the SSL/TLS section within a Fist Host hosting plan

Login to your Control Panel, then go to SSL/TLS option and enter details.

Note: Your Private Key will have been provided when you generated a CSR using your organization's details. If you have any questions about this, the certificate provider will be able to help.

Please also note that SSL certificates can take up to 30 minutes to install on to the webserver. If your A records are then pointing to the IP address of the hosting package then your site should show as secure.
