How do I activate my free SSL?

How do I activate my free SSL?

Every MEDIAMAKS UK hosting package comes with a free wildcard SSL certificate, enabling you to use the more secure HTTPS protocol to keep your site users secure. To activate the SSL, you’ll need to make sure you’ve pointed the domain name to our nameservers (why our nameservers are required).

These are:

  • ns1.stackdns.com
  • ns2.stackdns.com
  • ns3.stackdns.com
  • ns4.stackdns.com

With that done, you need to:

  • Go to Manage Hosting.
  • Select Options > Manage on the hosting package which you wish to activate the SSL.
  • Under Security, click on the SSL/TLS icon.
  • You will then see your domain name and an option to Activate Free SSL next to it – select this and the SSL will be applied to your domain.
  • If you’d like all your visitors to use SSL connections (i.e. for HTTPS to always be used), simply select the Enable option at the bottom of the page​.
