How can I install a custom SSL Certificate?

If you want to have an SSL certificate for one specific version of your site, then you need to make it custom. When installing a custom SSL certificate you decide which subdomains to include in that specific SSL certificate.

This article will help you install a custom SSL certificate from the WPX hosting panel.

Step 1. Log in to your WPX account.

You can log in to your WPX account here.

Step 2. Navigate to your hosting plan.

You can either find your hosting service through the navigation menu or within your dashboard. Once you log in to your WPX account select My Services (1) → WordPress Hosting (2).

Then you will see all of your hosting services with us. When you find the plan that you want to manage, you need to select the orange button Manage service.

Step 3. Install custom SSL Certificate for “www” version of the site.

When installing a free SSL Certificate from WPX, it includes both @ (same as domain) and www versions of the website by default.

This is just an example of how custom SSL certificates work.

To install an SSL certificate for just the “www” version of your website, you need to select the dropdown button SSL (1) → Install FREE Certificate (2):

А pop-up notification with options for installing the SSL certificate will appear on your screen, you need to select the Custom tab:

From there you can just add “www” in front of the domain name to install the SSL for that specific version and vice versa.

If you install the SSL certificate only for the “www” version of the website the “non-www” or @ version will remain without an SSL certificate.

That’s it! You have installed an SSL certificate solely for the www version of the site.

Step 4. Install custom SSL certificate for Alias.

You can add aliases in the SSL certificates of the main website. To do that, you need to select the dropdown button SSL (1) → Install FREE Certificate (2):

А pop-up notification with options for installing the SSL certificate will appear on your screen, you need to select the Custom tab:

Choose Add More (1) to double the fields so you can install the certificate for both your main website and the alias you have connected to it, then Install (2):

That’s it! You have successfully installed one certificate for both your website and aliases connected to it.
