Install an SSL Certificate - Overview


This article will provide you an overview on how to install an SSL Certificate and its prerequisites.


  • You have successfully received a new SSL Certificate using a new Certificate Signing Request (CSR) which you are ready to install.
  • You have a copy of the correct Intermediate Certificate ready to install (refer to Intermediate Certificates). The Intermediate Certificates are necessary for browsers to trust the SSL Certificate you are going to install. It is important to note that for some servers (such as Microsoft) the Intermediate Certificates are already included with the SSL Certificate.

Note: You can obtain your Certificate at any time by checking the email sent to you, including your Certificate or through your GlobalSign Certificate Center (GCC) account.


To help you get started, here are direct links to the installation instructions for some of the most common server types:

Once you have installed your Certificate, please use GlobalSign's SSL Configuration Checker to verify that it has been installed correctly.
