How to Install an SSL Certificate?

An SSL Certificate is a text file containing encrypted data that you install on your server to secure and encrypt sensitive connections between your website and your clients. More information on SSL certificates can be found here.

Our Validation team validates and processes your certificate request when you create a CSR (certificate signing request) and purchase a certificate. (Learn more about how certificates are validated.) We will issue your SSL Certificate and send it to you through email after it has been validated. In your DigiCert account, you can also download your SSL Certificate.

Intermediate Certificate of Qualification

You’ll need to install an intermediate certificate when you install an SSL certificate on a server or an SSL-enabled application. By attaching your SSL certificate to your Certificate Authority’s root certificate (your DigiCert issued SSL certificate, the intermediate certificate, and the DigiCert root certificate), this intermediate certificate verifies the trustworthiness of your SSL certificate. A Browser requires the intermediate certificate to complete the certificate trust chain. Find out more about intermediate and root certificates.
