Install SSL certificate in Vesta Control Panel

SSL certificate is one of the essential ways to protect the data over the web, which is compatible with many servers, including Apache, Vesta control panel, Netscape Enterprise, control panel, Zeus, Plesk, Lotus Domino, etc.

SSL certificate assures visitors that their online details and transactions will remain secure from snoopy eyes. SSL certificate turns your website address from HTTP to HTTPS.

Today, we will go through the process of installing an SSL certificate in Vesta control panel. After purchasing an SSL certificate, the main question that remains an enigma for the certificate purchaser is the certificate installation.

If you fall short to install certificates correctly, it can create difficulty for your clients to access your website and give chance to attackers to lure your valuable clients. Here is the finest process that I am going to explain to enable Comodo Positive SSL certificate on Vesta Control Panel.

  1. Now fill in the rest details in the prescribed form.

    • COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA.crt
    • COMODORSAAddTrustCA.crt
    • AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt
    • domain_com.crt
  1. Just create a new text file or any plain text editor you have. This new file covers the first three files of the above list and has to be in that precise order.

  1. Now go back to Vesta Control Panel and
    • Copy the content of domain_com.crt in the first box “SSL Certificate”.
