Q. What is the process for ordering a certificate?
A. First, go to our SSL certificate page and use the link provided to order your certificate. Here you will be able to specify the type of certificate you need, the number of years the certificate is valid, and enter your credit card information for payment.

Once we receive and verify your payment, we will process your order. This will generate two emails. The first will be an automated email receipt. The second will be an automated email from Hosted In Canada/Hosted In America with a few questions we need you to answer to generate the Certificate Signing Request (CSR) you will need along with your registration code.

Once you have responded to our email in the step above, we will process your order.

You will then receive an email from the certificate vendor "Geo Trust" with a link to approve the certificate order and instructions on what information you will need to complete your order, if needed.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to send this information promptly to ensure quick processing of your order.

For "TRUEBizID" certificates we require additional information. Once the certificate vendor has verified your proof or organization (True Business ID only), they will send you and Hosted In Canada/Hosted in America the site certificate. Once we receive this, you will be contacted by our office to offer support with installing the certificate on your site.
