Installing an SSL certificate on Internet Information Services (IIS) 10 can help secure and encrypt the data transmitted between your website and its users. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps to successfully install SSL certificate IIS 10.
Before installing an SSL/TLS certificate, it’s important to generate a certificate signing request (CSR) and submit it for validation and signing to the Certificate Authority. You can also use a free Windows certificate management tool to order and install your certificate with ease.
First, locate the order in your cheapsslweb.com account and click one of the download links.
Next, click the download link to the right of Microsoft IIS (*.p7b) in the certificate downloads table.
Start IIS Manager. One quick way to do this is by opening the Run command, then typing inetmgr and clicking the OK button.
Select the server in the Connections pane on the left side of the window.
Double-click the Server Certificates icon, located under IIS, in the center pane of the window.
Click Complete Certificate Request… in the Actions pane on the right side of the window.
The Complete Certificate Request wizard will appear. First, click the button labeled “…” to open the file open dialog box.
Navigate to the .p7b file you downloaded from cheapSSLweb.com. Note that you will have to change the drop-down menu to the right of the File name field from *.cer to *.* to see the file.
Click the Open button.
Next, enter a memorable name for the certificate in the Friendly name field (here, we are simply entering the certificate’s common name).
Click the OK button.
The certificate is installed! The next step is to bind the certificate to a particular website, port, and/or IP address.
