SSL Certificate

Secure Sockets Layer, a security technology for encrypted links.

What is an SSL certificate in Kajabi?

An SSL certificate in Kajabi is a digital certificate that provides authentication for a website and enables an encrypted connection. SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, a security protocol that provides privacy, authentication, and integrity to Internet communications. When installed on a web server, an SSL certificate activates the padlock and the https protocol, allowing secure connections from a web server to a browser.

In the context of Kajabi, a platform for creating, marketing, and selling online courses, an SSL certificate is crucial for protecting sensitive information such as credit card numbers, usernames, passwords, emails, etc., that are exchanged during transactions. Kajabi automatically provides an SSL certificate for all its sites, ensuring that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.

How to install an SSL Certificate in Kajabi?

Installing an SSL certificate in Kajabi is a straightforward process. First, you need to log into your Kajabi account. Once you're logged in, navigate to the "Settings" tab and then click on the "Domain" section. Here, you will find the "SSL" option.

Click on the "SSL" option and then select "Enable SSL". Kajabi will automatically generate and install an SSL certificate for your domain. This process may take a few minutes. Once the SSL certificate is installed, your website will be secured and all data transferred between your site and its visitors will be encrypted. Please note that SSL is only available for custom domains and not for Kajabi provided domains.

Why is my SSL Certificate not working in Kajabi?

There could be several reasons why your SSL certificate is not working in Kajabi. One common issue is that the certificate may not have been properly installed. This could be due to an error during the installation process, or it could be that the certificate was not correctly linked to your Kajabi account. It's also possible that the certificate has expired, as SSL certificates are only valid for a certain period of time and need to be renewed regularly.

Another potential issue could be related to mixed content on your site. If your Kajabi site includes both secure (HTTPS) and non-secure (HTTP) content, this can cause problems with your SSL certificate. Browsers may block non-secure content or display a warning to users, which can make it seem like your SSL certificate is not working. To resolve this, you would need to ensure that all content on your site is served over HTTPS. If none of these solutions work, it would be best to contact Kajabi support or the provider of your SSL certificate for further assistance.

How to renew an SSL Certificate in Kajabi?

Renewing an SSL certificate in Kajabi involves a few steps. First, you need to log into your Kajabi account and navigate to the "Settings" tab. From there, select "Domain" and then click on the domain you want to renew the SSL certificate for. If your SSL certificate is about to expire, you should see a "Renew SSL" button. Click on this button to initiate the renewal process.

The system will then guide you through the renewal process, which may involve verifying your domain ownership again. Once you've completed the necessary steps, your SSL certificate should be renewed. It's important to note that SSL certificates are typically valid for a certain period, usually one year, so you'll need to repeat this process periodically to ensure your site remains secure.
