  1. Select Domain info in the Domain Settings menu.
  2. Click the Edit icon in the Web Service field.
  3. Enable SSL for the domain in the list.
  4. In the SSL Support section click Import SSL certificate.
  5. On the page that shows click Generate a temporary SSL certificate and certificate request.
