  9. We will automatically verify that the domain ownership is yours and install the SSL certificate to your chosen domain! 

Note: It will take between 30 minutes and 4 hours to complete the installation. You can check the status of the installation from the SSL Certificate page in your control panel. For a third-party SSL certificate, it is only available to VPS and a dedicated server. Please contact our customer service for installation.


If the domain lookup fails (this is highly unlikely):
  1. If the status says “Domain verification failed,” you’ll need to click the “Send email” option, found in the three-dots symbol.
  2. Once you click the link, we will automatically create an email address named; hostmaster@sslnewsignup.com, which will forward to the administrative email address we have on file.
  3. You will then receive an email to that administrative email address asking you to confirm the validity of the SSL certificate. For Extended Validation SSL customers: If you have attempted to install an Extended Validation SSL, you will need to submit a signed agreement from the Certificate Approver. (See requirements)

Note: After you have approved the SSL via email, it will take between 30 minutes and 4 hours to complete the installation. You can check the status of the installation from the SSL Certificate page in your control panel, or you may simply check if your URL begins with "HTTPS," which indicates it has an SSL certificate already. Then click on the padlock icon in the address bar to view your certificate information.
