Service Guide

The SSL Guide gives a quick overview of the SSL certificate order, including the "common name" for the certificate, the approval email used for the order, the status and price of the order.


Install / Reinstall SSL Certificate

Provides the steps to automatically install or reinstall your SSL certificate on most services. In some cases, you will need to manually install your SSL certificate.


Make Changes to Your SSL Certificate Information

Allows you to edit your SSL contact information, as well as alter the "common name" associated to your SSL. Changing the common name will allow you to fix spelling errors, or even change the SSL to a new domain.

However, do keep in mind that using a "new common name" will make the SSL no longer valid on the "old common name." This will also require you to validate the SSL for the "new common name."



Approval Email Address

Shows the email address used to place the order for your SSL certificate, and allows you to resend the approval email to the address if needed.


Certificate Information

Provides access to the raw text of your SSL certificate, private key, and chain certificates, along with the ability to download them via a zipped file.


To download the SSL certificate in a zipped file, click the Download button. The zip file will contain the following files ("COMMON_NAME" will be replaced with whatever you entered for the SSL certificate domain):

  • SSL_COMMON_NAME-starfield.crt (CA/Chain Certificate)
  • SSL_COMMON_NAME.crt (SSL Certificate)
  • SSL_COMMON_NAME.key (Private Key)

The raw certificate text is also available in the View Certificate Data section.
