How to install an SSL Certificate on your branded URL | ResellerClub

At ResellerClub, we take our platform's security seriously, and our making constant improvements to its core features As a part of enhancing the security of our platform, we have converted all the partially branded URLs to https

Now, in order to go ahead and fully brand your Supersite, Partnersite and Control Panel, we have made some modifications to your Control Panel In this video, I am going to talk about the changes as well as take you through the process of securing your URLs The entire process of securing your branded URL is divided into 5 phases: – Pointing the Domain Name to the new records, – Purchasing a Digital Certificate, – Generating the CSR and Private Key, – Issuing the certificate, and- Installing the certificate on the server In order to point the Domain Name to the https enabled servers, we have modified the records that were used for branding You need to click on Settings, – Branding settings, – Supersite and Partnersite, and scroll down to find the new record that is provided

Incase you have already branded the URL, then you need to modify the IP address, else you can brand your URL by pointing them to the new IP address mentioned on the screen Similarly, all the records for the Partnersites, and Control Panel needs to be updated with the new records provided in your respective section Once the records are modified, we need to wait for 4 to 6 hours for the propogation to complete In the current panel you can see the branded URL as yourwebsiteorg

in In order to add the records we first check the name servers of the Domain Name, and then add the respective records in the current DNS zone Domain name- yourwebsiteorgin is currently using the name servers of orderbox Hence, I have added the records in the orderbox DNS panel

Similarly, all the records for Supersite, Partnersite, and Control Panel needs to be added in the current DNS zone of the Domain Name Once the records are added or modified, you need to wait for 4- 6 hours for the propogation to complete Now in order to purchase the Digital Certificate, you need to go back to the branding settings Click on Settings, – Branding settings, – Supersite and Partnersite, and- Click on Buy Comodo SSL This will now redirect you to the express cart from where you can complete your purchase

You can also opt to purchase the certificate from a third party provider We do provide multiple certificates to secure your domain name To secure a single URL you can either purchase a Positive or a Comodo SSL certificate If you have more than 1 fully branded URL, for example subdomains, we recommend you to purchase a Positive Wildcard Certificate Incase you are using multiple domains to brand your URL, then you can purchase multiple Positive or Comodo SSL certficates

Once the certificate is purchased, you need to get it issued by the certificate authority using the CSR and Private Key A CSR or a Certificate Signing Request is a block of encrypted text that is generated on the server It contains several details that will be included in the certificate such as your organization name, common name, locality, and country In order to generate the CSR you need to click on Settings, – Branding Settings, – Supersite and Partnersite, Scroll down and – Click on Generate the Private Key and CSR This will redirect you to the SSL Manager

This is the panel from where you will be able to generate the CSR, Private Key and also install the certificate on the server In order to login, you need to first mention your Reseller ID, Username and your Password The common name is a parameter where you need to mention the domain name for which the certificate needs to be issued If you have purchased a Positive/ Comodo SSL, then you need to mention the common name as your “domain namecom”

This will get the certificate issued for the Domain Name as well as wwwdomainnamecom In case of a Wildcard Certificate you need to mention the common name as *domainname

This will issue the certificate that can secure all your sub domains In this scenario, since I have the URL as yourwebsiteorgin , and I have purchased a Wildcard Certificate, hence, I will mention it as *yourwebsite

orgin Click on generate This will generate the CSR and Private Key It is always recommended to copy the Private Key and the CSR as this tool can be used to generate multiple CSR and Private Key

In order to copy the Private Key and the CSR you can click on copy, and paste it on a notepad At any given point of time, only the latest CSR and Private Key will be displayed on the panel Since the CSR and Private Key is generated, lets go ahead and issue the certificate The issuance of the certificate comprises of 2 steps: 1)Providing the CSR and 2)Completing the verification process If the certificate is purchased with a Third Party Provider, then you need to copy the CSR and provide them the details

If the certificate is purchased with us, then you need to click on – Products, – List all orders, – Click on the certificate that you have purchased, and click on- Issue Certificate Here you need to provide the CSR that was generated Once the CSR is provided, click on – Next, and this will ask you for the Verification Email address This has to be an admin email address of the domain name or you can create any 1 of the predefined email ids that are provided and select them Click on Send application to Certificate authority and now the certificate provider will send you an email, with the verification code

You need to now check your inbox for the email that was sent by Comodo Click on the email id and copy the code that is provided Click on next and this completes the verification process You'll now see 2 emails that are sent by Comodo Click on those emails and you will find the certificate that can be downloaded on your local system

As you can see, the certificate has been now downloaded to my local system I'll now go ahead and unzip the file And I'll find the certificate that is required to be installed in the control panel Here, I have 4 files out of which, 1 is your certificate and the remaining are the CA bundle files The certificate size will vary depending on the certificate provider

Now in order to install the certificate, you need to go back to your Reseller Control Panel, Click on Settings, – Branding settings, – Supersite and Partnersite, and now click on the last step that is Upload your Private Key, SSL certificate and CA bundle This will again redirect you back to the SSL Manager Page This interface will now show you all the branded URLs created under your panel You can click on the respective URL, and provide the certificate details to complete the installation process Here you need to mention your Common Name, Private Key, SSL certificate and CA bundle

As you can see, I have added the Private Key, SSL certificate, and the CA bundle and now Click on Save This will save the certificate on the server For Wildcard certificate since the certificate is already generated, you can copy and paste the same details for all the other URLs that you see Incase you have purchased an individual certificate for different domain names, then you need to repeat the same process and complete the installation for all the URLs Once the certificate is installed on the server, you need to wait for a minimum of 48 to 72 hours for the redirection from http to https to work
