Plesk Panel is an electronic administration tool that is provided by many hosting organizations and is utilized to setup and control a website page or webpage. 

Private Keys 

The initial step is to make a private key. A private key is a series of characters that a PC uses to encode or decode encrypted messages it gets.

The private key file must be utilized with the particular SSL certificate for which it is made. This private key is mystery and ought not be given out. There is no real way to recoup a private key file in the event that it is lost. 

  1. Login to your Plesk Panel control board, the information on the most proficient method to do this was provided by your hosing company. 
  2. Click on SSL/TLS Manager Icon in the security window. 
  3. Look to the base of the screen and select the domain name you need the SSL installed on. 
  4. Select the key size, the greater the key the more secure. 
  5. Then, click Generate to make your new key and click "Come back to SSL Manager". 

SSL Certificate Signing Request (CSR) 

A CSR is a demand which you send to a certificate retailer requesting that they allow you a SSL certificate. You should have a key before producing a CSR. 

  • Under "Produce a New Certificate Signing Request" select the Host; the site the SSL is to be installed on. 
Fill in all the required information 

  1. Nation 
  2. State 
  3. City 
  4. Company - you can utilize the name of your site. 
  5. Company Division - you can utilize the specialty you are working in. 
  6. Email address - this is the place the SSL certificate will be sent 
  7. Pass Phrase - Not required, it's a test password utilized by Apache at startup to decrypt your SSL private key. 
When all the information is finished click the "Produce" catch to make the certificate. Make a duplicate of the CSR, you will require it when acquiring the SSL certificate and afterward click "Come back to SSL Manager". 

Buy SSL Certificate 

Plesk Panel is currently prepared to acknowledge another SSL certificate. Do a look for "SSL certificates" to discover a retailer. 

  1. Buy a certificate and fill in the required information. 
  2. You will be requested that paste the CSR that you created in Plesk Panel into a form to finish the exchange. 
  3. Affirm you are the site owner - every retailer will be somewhat extraordinary, some may have phone affirmation others will have email or both. 
  4. When you have affirmed you are the owner of the site the retailer will send you the SSL certificate and a middle CA certificate which you will install utilizing Plesk Panel. 

Install the Certificate 

Realize that you have every one of the certificates you are prepared to install them on Plesk Panel. Duplicate the certificates you got from your retailer and the key you created toward the start into a word pad document for simple get to. 

  1. Back to Plesk Panel and the SSL/TLS Manger 
  2. Click the "Setup a SSL certificate to work with your site" at the base of the page. In the event that this connection does not appear contact your hosting company. 
  3. Select your domain starting from the drop menu. 
  4. Duplicate the SSL Certification and paste it into the "Certificate (CRT)" window. 
  5. Duplicate the Key and paste it into the "KEY)" window. 
  6. Duplicate the middle CA and paste it into the "Ca Bundle (CABUNDLE) window.
With every one of the certificates and the key set up click the "Install Certificate" catch. On the off chance that no blunders where made you will get an affirmation that the SSL certificate was installed. Remember that every retailer may name the certificates in a somewhat unique way. 

On the off chance that the retailer has a webpage seal that you can apply to your site that affirms you have SSL, I recommend doing as such in light of the fact that it gives your visitors and customer's bit of mind while they shop on your website. 

On the off chance that you keep running into an issue just delete and begin once more, Plesk Panel looks extremely scary however it is reasonably user friendly. Give yourself a couple of hours to achieve the whole procedure from shopping for the certificate to the installation.

With the SSL installed your customers can now shop on your site with the certainty that their private information is protected.
