Purchasing an SSL certificate with gogetssl.com

What is gogetssl.com?

It’s a well-known and trusted brand on the market that sell digital certificates from leading certificate authorities for more than 10 years. Certificates are issued by leading providers like Sectigo, RapidSSL, Thawte, DigiCert, and GeoTrust.

The process of obtaining an SSL  certificate with gogetssl.com service is quite simple but of course, it has some special aspects.

1. Go to your gogetssl.com account -> My prices section -> choose the certificate you would like to obtain -> Order.
In our example, we have chosen the cheapest simple certificate that will be valid for 1 domain (it’s enough if you are using 1 custom tracking domain)

2. Pay for the certificate by following the steps provided by gogetssl.com and proceed with the configuration.
Go to SSL certificates -> View your certificate -> Generate certificate

3. There you will see the CSR field. That means you need to generate your CSR at this step.

Simply fo to the Online CSR generator and fill on all the required fields and generate your CSR

4. On the next step, you will get the generated  CSR code and your private key. Copy both of them.

5. Go back to the configuration (step 3) and paste the CSR code to the appropriate field – > validate CSR
