How to activate a free WordPress SSL Certificate
Bluehost now provides free SSL certificates for all assigned and parked domain names set up in your account. In most cases, the SSL will automatically assign and install itself to your new and existing domains; however, some customers may need to manually enable the certificate.
To enable the free SSL certificate:
- Log into your Bluehost control panel.
- Click the Addons tab.
- Locate SSL Certificates, and click on the learn more button.
- Click the get started button under WordPress Free SSL.
- Click the Install button.
Once you've turned the SSL on, it can take a few hours to install and activate. In some situations, we may need you to take action to complete the process. If so, you'll receive an email with instructions.
