    How do I generate the certificate ?

    I got a years free PositiveSSL from Namecheap but I don't know how to generate the certificate.

    I bought hosting with hostgator do I do it through that ?

    Need a little help with this haven't found a clear cut answer with Google/Name cheap Faq.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Sorry for the double post can't seem to edit my first post.

    Do I have to wait a certain amount of time before I can activate the PositiveSSL on Namecheap ? or do I leave this out ?

    As I registered the domain about 13 hours ago.. same with purcashing hosting from Hostgator.

    Also what web server should I pick Cpanel right ?

    sorry for all the questions would just like some help on this particular topic then I am ready to go...

    It's pretty easy just installed one - I had a few problems but that was because I was trying to do it all through WHM. Follow those instructions in the link from terryuk you should get an email with the certificate you paste it into the ssl manager in Cpanel
