How To Install A Free SSL Certificate With WPX Hosting

In the following article we will describe on how to enable SSL here at our web hosting service and few very simple steps.
1. Login with your WPX account details and navigate to Manage all sites in this account.

2. Once you’ve reached the Dashboard for your account you will need to reach the websites wizard
tool in order to enable the SSL option for the desired website.

At the moment the SSL certificate should be enabled by default for every newly added website. Therefore if you see the green padlock next to your website, you can miss this step.

Note: You should receive a similar message stating:


“testtest.com has now been enabled for SSL certification. The NEXT STEP is to choose which type of SSL certificate you would like from the "SSL" dropdown menu on this page after closing this box.”

3. Now that you have enabled the website SSL option, you can proceed with generating the Free SSL certificate in one simple step like that (in this tutorial we’ll use the free SSL although you can use your commercial certificate if you have one):

And you should see this window popping up:

Important NoteIn order to install the free Let's Encrypt SSL Certificate successfully the domain name should already point to our servers!!!

From here on your request for the SSL Certificate is added in the Automation Queue and you will receive a notification in the top right coner when the task is completed.

So what's next now?

You would probably encounter an issue with Mixed Content which means that you'll need to install Really Simple SSL and activate the plugin, the rest is done automatically by the plugin itself for you.
