SSL Certificate Installation

The installation process can be broken down to into a few steps.  First you will need a CSR (Certificate Signing request).  You will either get this from the place you host your website by putting in a support ticket or in some cases you can get it yourself if you have access to the web server.  Once you have the CSR you then present it to a Certificate Authority - often this is done by cutting and pasting it into a form on their website.  Finally the CA will issue the SSL Certificate which you then install on your server or have the tech guys at your host install it for you.

I'll provide some very basic instructions on how to get the CSR and then how to install the certificate once you receive it.
