Download Godaddy SSL for Hostgator Install

Awful company, autobilling a month before expiration with no notice or negotiation – I’ll give anyone the worst review ever for auto-billing you 30 days prior to your site expiration and refusing to offer any sort of refund, and bury it in the TOS, without providing any notice of autobilling. They outsource their domains to another company who is some sort of shadowy figure of which there is no negotiation. The customer service sucks, and to top it off, their chat is f-ing unencrypted while asking your for login and password info to verify your account! The chat person even told me there was no way I could submit a ticket without going through the chat (not true, I did it on the phone cause I refused to give him my login info on a site that Chrome blocked). Unbelievable that a hosting company that wants to assure me my shit is secure, asking me to provide personal info on an unencrypted connection. Will never use this company again.

In this video i show you the process you need to go through when downloading an SSL from Godaddy to place in a 3rd party server, for example, Hostgator.

    Hey. I received my SSL certificate bundle from DigiCert. In that bundle is file called DigiCertCA.crt and the other is www_mydomain_com.crt.
    I have a shared hosting plan from HostGator. Would you be able to tell me please what information from my DigiCert bundle goes into the SSL Certificate box and the SSL CA Certificate box in the HostGator SSL Install form? Many thanks.

    Great info, spent hours looking through other videos with no luck. This is better than Hostgator's or Godaddy's instructions. Thanks

    YOU are amazing. Hostgator and Godaddy was a real PITA to deal with. This makes sense now. I do have a question, where do you get the SSL CA Certificate
    (Trusted Authority / "CA Bundle") from Godaddy to paste into the Hostgator form? Godaddy support are clueless to as where to get this information. thanks so much!
