Comodo SSL Order Form

HostGator is teaming up with Comodo to offer you a range of SSL certificates to secure your online transactions and protect you and your customers. Comodo certificates feature 2048 bit signatures and up to 256 bit encryption to make sure sensitive information can be sent and received with confidence - and Comodo stands behind their products with warranties of up to $1,750,000!

You can review and order Comodo SSL certificates through HostGator's form available here. (You can also purchase a Comodo SSL directly in your HostGator portal. Follow the instructions for Billing Portal - SSL Certificates.)

This article will provide a walkthrough of the order form. Just follow the steps below to order your new Comodo SSL certificate and start protecting your site today!


Initial Ordering Information

These first steps gather some basic information about the type of Comodo SSL certificate you wish to order and the domain and package to install it to.

Which package would you like to purchase an SSL for?

This step automatically displays all of your current HostGator packages - just select the one you would like to protect!

Step 1

 

What type of SSL Certificate do you want?

You can select from several types of Comodo SSL certificates, from the basic Positive to the extra-trusted Comodo Extended Validation.

The basic Positive SSL offers secure connections for a low rate. The new Comodo SSL is our best value, with a $250,000 warranty level to give you peace of mind. The Positive Wildcard SSL secures your primary domain like a typical SSL certificate but can protect multiple subdomains as well. Finally, the Comodo Extended Validation SSL provides the highest level of confidence for your site's visitors - backed by Comodo's highest warranty!

Clicking the information icon will provide more information on each type of certificate.

Step 2

Pending the type of SSL certificate that you select to purchase, the form will either provide a button or more information to fill out to purchase your SSL.

What domain would you like to install your SSL certificate on?

You can choose which of your domains will be covered by this SSL. Only one domain on a shared package can have an SSL certificate installed. However, Comodo's Positive Wildcard SSL can cover multiple subdomains of your primary domain!

Step 5

 

How long would you like to purchase this SSL for? (Term Length?)

You may select up to two years of coverage initially. Your certificate will secure your site for as long as you require, and when it expires the certificate can be reissued to your domain again.

Step 4

 

Contact and Certificate Information

The information in these next steps will be used by Comodo both to verify your purchase and create your certificate, so it is very important that this information is correct and matches the WHOIS information for your domain.

Contact Info

This section should be completed fully and correctly. For faster validation, HostGator or our SSL Partners may contact you by phone to verify your order and issue your certificate as quickly as possible.

Step 6

Certificate Information

The information you enter in the Certificate Information section is actually incorporated into your Comodo SSL certificate itself. All Comodo SSL certificates require this information to be accurate, and the Comodo Extended SSL (also known as the "green bar" SSL for the color it displays in your visitor's browser) uses it to verify your business details for that extra level of trust for your site.

Same as contact information

To make it easier for you, checking this box will automatically populate the Certificate Information contact fields with the identical information you placed in the Contact Information step.

Step 7


Finalizing Your Order

The last steps to complete your Comodo SSL certificate order is to select the boxes acknowledging that this is a non-refundable charge and that you have read and agree to the Comodo Subscriber Agreement.

Step 9

Order SSL

Click Order SSL to place your Comodo SSL certificate order. Your HostGator account will be invoiced for only the amount you authorized, and your Comodo verification process will begin as soon as you click.

Step 11

Please contact us via phone or Live Chat if you have any questions or require assistance.
