SSL Installation of Self-Signed Certificate

Before you can use a Private SSL Self-Signed Certificate with your FastDomain hosted domain, we require your account to have a dedicated IP address. You can add a dedicated IP address to your hosting service from the Addons section of your Control Panel.



  1. Log into your FastDomain cPanel
  2. Open the TLS/SSL Manager tool, located in the Security section of the cPanel.
  1. Click on Generate, view, upload, or delete your private keys
  2. Under the Generate a New Key section, select the desired domain from the drop-down list and select Key Size 2048 or 1024
  3. Press the Generate button
  4. Your private key will be displayed. Click Return to SSL Manager
  1. Back in the SSL Manager page, click Generate, view, or delete SSL certificate signing requests.
  2. Host: Choose your Main Domain Name
  3. Country: Enter the 2 digit code for the country in which you reside.
  4. State: Enter your State or Locality (Do not abbreviate).
  5. City: Enter the City (Do not abbreviate).
  6. Company: Enter your Company Name.
  7. Company Division: (Optional) You may use this to distinguish between departments.
  8. Email: Enter the address the certificate should be sent to.
  9. Pass Phrase: Enter a phrase to use for the passphrase (password).
  10. Press the Generate button.
  11. If you have entered valid information, you will be shown your CSR. (if it looks blank, click back and correct any information)
  1. Return to the SSL manager and click Generate, view, upload, or delete SSL certificates
  2. Either paste your SSL Cert in the box or click the Upload button to upload the crt file.
  3. Click the Generate button.
  4. Contact us via Phone or Live Chat to request your KEY and CRT be installed on the server.
Note: The KEY as well as the CRT will be required when we install your certificate on the server. It is recommended to keep a backup copy of each of these as they may be used for this particular domain name with any host.
