Will I receive a FreeSSL certificate for my domain hosted with a third party?

You will receive a FreeSSL certificate for each domain hosted or registered with Hostpoint. Thus, you will also receive a FreeSSL certificate for a domain that is hosted with another hosting provider but was registered with Hostpoint.

To do so, you need your Hostpoint ID as your login and must initiate a CSR request with your current hosting provider. You can then insert this file in our certificate manager and generate and download a certificate (see also «How do I generate a FreeSSL certificate for a domain bought through Hostpoint but used externally?»).

You must then provide the downloaded file to your hosting provider, which must install the certificate.

Whether or not your web hosting provider supports the import of your FreeSSL certificate from Hostpoint must be clarified directly with your provider.
