    Sellerdeck Hosting and SSL

    Is it possible to setup your own SSL on Sellerdeck Hosting?


    I queried why the high price of Sellerdeck Hosting's SSL, and I was told "management"...

    We paid for 1 year to Sellerdeck and the next renewal is this May... but checking our Sellerdeck website's, the cert expires next year = Sellerdeck setup for 2 years... (cheaper to setup)

    If the cert is expiring next year... in theory, Sellerdeck doesn't have to do anything... (so what "management"?)

    So... If I say "no" to renewal... will Sellerdeck delete the existing cert?
    If not, then I will still have 1 more year's SSL...

    If they do, then I need to know if can I do it myself?
    ie. Does the SSL option remain available?
    I know some options in Sellerdeck plesk are not available = I presume disabled by Sellerdeck (missing options compared to host-it's plesk)
    If the option "Websites & Domains">"SSL Certificates" remains available, then I have the option to "Add SSL Certificate" and once do a request, I believe all I need is the CSR data, right?

    From what I've experienced, installing 3rd party SSL on SD cPanel is just as you said - paste certificate and good to go. I've got DigiCert (came free from SD when we started with them) & GeoTrust and other keys on our servers.

      Thanks Matt... that's good to know.


        We did it with our sellerdeck site, we used GoDaddy and it was relatively easy to do.

          I was worried about the SSL option, if I don't have SSL with SD, SD might remove the SSL button from my Plesk menu... but changing hosts now, so it's ok.

          I've also learnt a lot about SSLs... it is easy to do (in Plesk - I remember it was a challenge to setup many years ago in Windows IIS)...
          and once done, there's nothing else to do for another year (or two)...

          I quickly got a Comodo Cert for a few dollars (=1 year) to get a CA one going (cheapest one did not require the CSR from Plesk - did have to upload a file to our site)...
          and currently have a 2 year EV Cert multi domain in the validation process...
          - I found that (for us in UK) to avoid delays for the EV validation, make sure your public data is correct for BOTH address AND phone in:
          Companies House
          Kompass (free entry)
          upik (3rd party via Dun & Bradstreet - via your D-U-N-S number = make sure Dun & Bradstreet data is current - they had our old London address and we moved over 10 years ago)

          Thanks all.


            Ok final stage... installing the Trust Logo... I was advised to do this:

            Add this before your </HEAD> tag:

            <script type="text/javascript">//<![CDATA[
            var tlJsHost = ((window.location.protocol == "https:") ? "" : "");
            document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + tlJsHost + "trustlogo/javascript/trustlogo.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
            Add this before your </BODY> tag:

            <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
            TrustLogo("https://www.<domainnamehere>.com/acatalog/sectigo_trust_seal_lg_140x54.png", "SC5", "none");
            <a href="" id="comodoTL">EV SSL</a>
            I get an error in Sellerdeck "TrustLogo is undefined"

            I've manually added the png image of the seal, not sure whether I need to add all above...
