To get an SSL installed on a website, there are several steps that need to be completed.

Step 1: A CSR needs to be generated by your host, which will be used for the SSL certificate

Step 2: An SSL will need to be purchased. You can use various vendors that are available online to purchase your SSL. Surf New Media offers SSLs through their affiliate for $75 per year if you would like. By purchasing through us, you will not need to complete Step 1.

Step 3: The SSL will be issued, which would then need to be installed by your hosting company. The cost for installation is $50 charged by the host. The installation process can take 24 to 48 hours to complete by the host, but once it is completed, your security certificate will be active on the site.
