15:21Roman Bubelo:Hello Brittany. Thank you for contacting our Live Chat Support.
15:21Roman Bubelo:Thank you for the Support PIN, I would also need your Namecheap username.
15:21Brittany Neal:Sure, bneal22. And this is Omar, on behalf of Brittany.15:23Roman Bubelo:I am sorry Omar, thank you for letting me know. Please allow me 5-10 minutes to check the details.
15:24Brittany Neal:Sure thanks alot!15:24Roman Bubelo:Please let me also know the domain name in question.
15:24Brittany Neal:Yes, the domain is http://brittanyjewellneal.com15:25Roman Bubelo:Thank you for the domain.
15:27Roman Bubelo:I can see that the certificate is installed correctly and successfully. It can be checked via the link: https://decoder.link/sslchecker/bestalternativecoins.com/44315:27Roman Bubelo:The domain has been just recently pointed tot the hosting, so the propagation period is taking place.
15:27Roman Bubelo:Hence, I would recommend that you give it up to 24 hours and check again.
15:27Brittany Neal:It wasn’t recently, it was at least a month ago.
15:28Brittany Neal:Do you think something was done after I activated the certificate?
15:28Brittany Neal:Last time I worked on it I think was 8 weeks ago. I waited several days and checked back but the site was still marked as insecure.
15:29Roman Bubelo:Let me double-check this.15:30Roman Bubelo:I am very sorry, it was my mistake. I can see the issue. I can see that the certificate was issued, however, not installed yet. In order to secure the connection, it is necessary to install the certificate.
15:30Roman Bubelo:The certificate has been issued and sent to the administrative email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, you can download your certificate from your account. Here is a guide on how to download an SSL certificate from your account: https://www.namecheap.com/support/knowledgebase/article.aspx/9464/69/can-i-download-an-issued-certificate-on-your-site
15:30Roman Bubelo:In order to install the certificate, it is necessary to copy the whole code from the .crt file (Security Certificate) > go to your cPanel > SSL/TLS > Manage SSL Sites > paste the code to the “Certificate” box > click the “Autofill by Certificate” button > click the “Install” button.
15:30Roman Bubelo:If you want, I can also do the process on your behalf.
15:34Brittany Neal:The one that has been sent to the admin@ email seems to have expired. I would appreciate if you would do this on my behalf. Also, is there not a way to automate this process? I don’t think I’ve had to do this for any of my other sites installed with Namecheap.
15:35Roman Bubelo:It is possible to install Domain Validation single-domain certificates on your shared hosting using our Namecheap SSL plugin which will do everything automatically. You can check it here for future reference: https://www.namecheap.com/support/knowledgebase/article.aspx/9387/2218/how-do-i-install-an-ssl-using-your-cpanel-plugin
15:35Roman Bubelo:Please allow me 5 minutes to install your certificate.
15:40Roman Bubelo:I am glad to let you know that I have installed the certificate for you as requested. The installation can be checked here: https://decoder.link/sslchecker/brittanyjewellneal.com/443
15:40Roman Bubelo:I can also see that the HTTPS redirect has been already enabled and your website can be accessed securely. Everything seems to work well.
15:40Brittany Neal:Wow that’s fantastic thank you so much.
15:41Brittany Neal:I checked out the Namecheap SSL plugin you sent. Maybe next time I can easily enable using this.
