EasyWP: How to get SSL certificates?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a technology for guarding the internet connections between two, and more, systems. SSL certificates prevent the sensitive information from being accessed or/and modified by any third-party. SSL certificates create a foundation of trust by establishing a secure connection.

The CSR data file that you send to the SSL certificate issuer (called a Certificate Authority or CA) contains the Public key. The CA uses the CSR data file to create a data structure to match your Private key without compromising the key itself. In fact, the CA never sees the Private key. Once you receive the SSL certificate, you install it on your server. You also install an Intermediate certificate that establishes the credibility of your SSL certificate by tying it to your CA’s root certificate.

You have the following SSL Options on your hands using the EasyWP hosting:

If you use a free EasyWP domain like awesome_blog.ewp.live

For the website's created using EasyWP free domain name option (e.g. awesome_blog.ewp.live, where 'awesome_blog' is the name of your site), there’s a default SSL certificate installed on the website URL regardless of the EasyWP plan that you use.

This certificate cannot be managed from your end as it is installed on the EasyWP hosting server.

If you use Starter, Turbo or Supersonic plans

You are provided with the free PositiveSSL certificate to secure your website.

Note: Right now, the Free PositiveSSL works only for Namecheap domains. We are working on implementing it for the external domains as well.

Here's how to enable your free SSL certificate via the EasyWP Dashboard.

You can replace the free certificate with a custom one.
