After you purchase an SSL certificate, activate the SSL credit to request a new certificate. Before you begin, make sure the registration information for your domain name is up to date and correct.
Allow about 10 minutes to complete the request in your account.
To Request a Standard SSL Certificate

NOTE: If you do not see the credit, refresh your list by clicking Click Here in the grey bar just below the faded buttons.
- Click Request Certificate next to the certificate credit you want to activate.
- Select the appropriate hosting type for your certificate:
