What is third party hosting

Third party certificates

With all of our hosting or server products, you can independently install a third-party SSL certificate in the Hostpoint Control Panel in the certificate manager at any time.

Add external / self-signed SSL certificate

Please log into your control panel with your Hostpoint ID. Select the menu item “Admin” and then “SSL Certificates”. You are now in the certificate manager.

If you want to create a new certificate, select «Add external / self-signed SSL certificate».

Enter your CSR and the associated key and then click on “Install external SSL certificate”.

As soon as an SSL certificate has been successfully installed, you can activate it on the desired website on the edit page.
