EasyWP: Free SSL for your WordPress site

So, what is this Free PositiveSSL option?

As the SSL certificates are becoming more and more required and sometimes even obligatory (it is by now mandatory for any website to be approved by Google Chrome), we’ve started provisioning a Free PositiveSSL option to our customers with Turbo and Supersonic EasyWP packages.

Note: Find out more about the security options available with EasyWP websites in this article.

It is a 1-year PositiveSSL certificate from Sectigo CA, assigned to your account and installed automatically at the backend.

How does the Free PositiveSSL work?

In most cases, the Free PositiveSSL option will work in the following way.

  • The Free PositiveSSL option can be found in the EasyWP Dashboard >> Website panel.
  • There, click Manage in the SSL Certificate tab:


  • Click Add:


  • You’ll see the following options in the SSL Certificate menu:



  • Tick Free PositiveSSL and wait for a bit:



  • Next, switch the status toggle and give it a few moments to finish the process:



Well done, you’ll see the Free PositiveSSL enabled in the Dashboard, and that’s basically it!

Keep in mind that if you use the Supersonic CDN service for this website, the certificate should be installed in the CDN panel as well. If it’s the Free PositiveSSL option that you’ve decided to enable for the website, the certificate files and the Private key can be downloaded from this page.



Note
: You can also switch the Free PositiveSSL Off or replace it with the custom one, please refer to this article for the detailed guidelines.
