    SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization's details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser.

    4 Click on the Choose File button as soon as the page loads and then find the CRT file where you stored it or if you have copied the content of the CRT file, paste it in the box.

    Once you install the certificate now it’s time to activate the certificate

    1 Now go back to "SSL/TLS" options and click on the link Manage SSL Sites under Install and Manage SSL for your site (HTTPS).
    2 Here you can see the Domain option under Install/Update an SSL Host, choose your appropriate domain name from the drop-down menu.

    Activating the SSL certificate on your website
    -Click on SSL/TLS under Security in cPanel.
    -Under Install and Manage SSL for your site (HTTPS), click on Manage SSL sites.
    -Under Install an SSL Website, click on Browse Certificates.
    -Select the SSL certificate to activate. When ready, click Use Certificate.
    -The encrypted certificate will appear in the Certificate (CRT) text box.
    -If you have generated the private key in cPanel, it will be auto-added to the Private Key (KEY) text box. If you are activating an pre-existing SSL certificate, you will need to paste the certificate’s private key here. Make sure you include the beginning and ending lines.
    -Paste the CA (Certificate Authority) Bundle into the Certificate Authority Bundle (CABUNDLE) text field. Make sure you include the beginning and ending lines.
    -When ready, click Install Certificate.

    You will see a confirmation that the SSL certificate has been installed successfully.
