do I Install
an SSL Certificate?
Upon gaining your SSL certificate you will need to install it. There are different ways to install an SSL certificate. As mentioned above, some hosting providers will offer free or paid SSL certificates, in which case the SSL can be installed through a few button clicks on the Admin Panel.
For hosting companies that don't offer SSL certificate services, the process will have to be done manually, either via SSH or, if you don't have SSH access, then most likely with the help of your Hosting service provider.
We recommend https://letsencrypt.org/, who offers free SSL certificates and some easy to follow instructions on how to get it up and running on your site.
