Website Security and Backups Help

Configure my SSL certificate to work with the Web Access Firewall (WAF)

If you have Website Security, we provide HTTPS support to your website as part of your Web Access Firewall (WAF). You can use your custom certificate (EV, OV, or Wildcard) to replace the one provided with just a few simple steps.

Note: If you're using Managed WordPress or Web & Classic Hosting, please create a Website Security Support Ticket so we can add the certificate files for you.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Under Website Security and Backups, select Manage next to the Website Security account you want to manage.
  3. On the top of the page, select Firewall.
  4. On the card for your website, select SSL from the settings menu.
  5. Select Replace Certificate.
  6. Provide a copy of your private key (.key) and certificate (.crt).
    CSR and Private Key
  7. Select Save.

It can take up to 10 minutes after saving your certificate for the SSL to activate on the WAF.
