How to Get SSL Certificate
After placing an order from https://members.w3services.net. Login to your account and select the service.
It will show ==> Awaiting Configuration
Now let's configure it and get the SSL certificate files.
Click on "Configure Now" ==> Fill the correct details to request CSR files ( SSL request file ). Select "New Order" and Server type from the dropdown. Click on "Generate CSR".
Now fill the correct details with the domain name and submit it.
Note - the common name should be the name of domain without www.
Once CSR request is done. Refresh the page and do the next domain ownership verification process.
Methods ==> Select any one.
http - select if you do not have SSL install and will add a new order.
https - If you already have valid SSL and it's going to expire shortly.
DNS - If you are having domain DNS control.
Email - If you are having email@example.com access.
Let's do the process using a simple method i.e. file-based verification. Select "HTTP" from the dropdown and submit.
Reload the page if required.
Now, Lets login to Hosting Panel ( cPanel in my case ) and do the needful as required.
1 ) First, unhide hidden files and directory settings from the right top setting option.
2 ) As per HASH File details, Create a directory in public folder. Note - ( dot will be before directory name i.e. .well-know)
3 ) Folder inside - pki-validation
4 ) File with said name and content on it
5 ) Now, wait for 10 to 15 min and refresh the page. The system will also send an email once SSL ( all files are ready to copy from members panel ).
You successfully received your SSL certificate. You will get 3 main files i.e.
1 ) CRT file ( main certificate file )
2 ) Chain file ( all required/supported files for CA )
3 ) The private key ( main key file to validate the SSL certificate ). The private key will show when you click on the "Get Private Key" Button.
