Install a SSL certificate

With an SSL certificate you can switch your website from HTTP to secure HTTPS.
To install an SSL certificate, first order one via our website. If the website is at Easyhost, Easyhost will install the ssl certificate for you.

You can also install an externally purchased SSL certificate on a Easyhost hosting:

Follow these steps in the control panel:

  1. Go to “My products”> “Web hosting”> Click on “Hosting details” to the right of your domain name.
  2. In the menu on the left you choose “SSL & HTTPS”.
  3. Select the website on which you want to add the certificate and click on “Details”.
  4. Go to the “External certificate” tab and enter the details of your SSL certificate.
  5. Click on “Apply Certificate” to install it.
Tip: Is your website on HTTPS but your browser still marks it as unsafe?

Then check for mixed content and delete if necessary.
If you use WordPress, it is sufficient to install and activate the Really Simple SSL plugin to resolve the mixed content problem.

Tip: Install a free SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt on our web hosting
