Installing an SSL certificate

Step 1

Login to your account

Firstly, you'll need to login into your 34SP.com account at http://account.34sp.com.

Login to your account

Installing an SSL certificate

This will bring up a form. In the field labelled 'Private Key' please enter the private key associated with your SSL certificate. The private key is generated at the same time as the CSR (certificate signing request). If you personally generated the CSR, the private key will be in the same file location.

In the 'Certificate' field, please insert the certificate in full.

Depending on your certificate, you may be required to enter your certificate authority in the field labelled 'CA Certificate'.

When you're done, click 'Save Changes' and your SSL certificate will be installed.

Please note: You can return to this page to edit your certificate at any point, should you need to.
