Order, Renew or Cancellation of an SSL Certificate
3. SSL Certificates Overview
You will be automatically redirected to the SSL Certificates overview page.
Note that with our FreeSSL you will automatically receive a free SSL Certificate issued by Let's Encrypt for each domain and subdomain. Let's Encrypt's FreeSSL Certificates provide you with basic protection for secure data transfer to and from your website. If you have higher requirements for an SSL certificate, we recommend our cost-obligatory SSL certificates, which offer insurance protection among other things.
If you need a paid SSL certificate, the first step is to select the hosting subscription you want.
4. Order SSL Certificate
To order one of our two paid SSL certificates for your hosting or your own IP address, click on the «Order» button in the «Order SSL Certificate/IP Address» section.
In the popup that now opens, select the box for «Activate SSL» in the «SSL configuration» area at the bottom and then select «Automatic redirection to HTTPS» in the selection. To save this information, click on the «Save» button.
Detailed information on «Activating or configuring an SSL certificate» can be found by clicking on the link.
6. Renew SSL Certificate
The free FreeSSL certificate does not expire and you do not need to renew it.
A paid SSL Certificate (StandardSSL or PremiumSSL) will be renewed as soon as we receive the certificate fees from you. Before the SSL Certificate expires, you will receive an invoice from us via email for the renewal of the SSL Certificate.
Please note that the associated domain will no longer work if the SSL Certificate is no longer active. If you decide not to renew the SSL Certificate, cancel it at the end of the Certificate Term (see next section) so that the necessary server settings can be made and your domain remains available without interruption.
