How can I install a SSL certificate for a domain?

SSL Certificates can only be installed on IP Based hosting accounts.|
These directions assume that you have received your certificate from a Certificate Signing Authority.
1) From inside PSA, choose the domain in which you are installing the SSL certificate.
2) Access the domain's SSL section by clicking on the 'certificate' button. (If the 'certificate' button is grayed-out, this means the domain is set up for name-based hosting. If you want a domain to utilize all of the SSL capabilities available, that domain must be configured for IP-based hosting.)
3) When a CSR (certificate signing request) is generated there are two different text sections, the RSA Private Key and the Certificate Request. When installing an authorized certificate, the RSA Private Key text needs to precede the authorized certificate text.
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----[[ECRYPTED BLOCK OF TEXT]]-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY
----------BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----[[ECRYPTED BLOCK OF TEXT]]-----END CERTIFICATE-----
4) Paste the Private Key with the Certificate text into the 'Enter Certificate Text:' text box and press the 'Send Text' button. There should be a prompt that reads "Certificate Successfully Installed".
