Extended Validation SSL Certificates, also known as EV Certificates, provide the strictest validation requirements to prove to your customers that your site is not a phishing or fraudulent website and turn the address bar green to show customers that it's safe to proceed on your website.
Install the Primary Server File Certificate Using Key Manager
Follow these instructions to install your certificate using key manager:
- 1. Download your Root, Intermediate, and Primary Certificate files from your Account Manager.
- 2. Go to the Key Manager.
- 3. Install the new IIS SSL Server Certificate by clicking the key in the www directory—usually a broken key icon with a line through it, then select Install Key Certificate.
- 4. Enter the Password.
- 5. When you are prompted for bindings, add the IP and Port Number. Any Assigned is acceptable if you do not have any other IIS SSL certificates installed on the Web server.
Note: Multiple certificates installed on the same Web server will require a separate IP Address for each because SSL does not support host headers.
- 6. Go to the Computers menu and select the option Commit Changes, or close Key Manager and select Yes when prompted to commit changes.
- The new IIS SSL server certificate is now successfully installed.
- 7. Back up the Key in Key Manager by clicking Key Menu > Export > Backup File. Store the backup file on the hard drive and off the server.
Install the Root and Intermediate Certificates
Your IIS SSL Certificate will have been emailed to you. The email will also contain four other Certificates:
- ROOT certificate ( AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt)
- Intermediate CA certificates ( UTNAddTrustServer_CA.crt, NetworkSolutionsUTNServerCA.crt, and NetworkSolutionsEVSSLCA.crt)
Save these Certificates to the desktop of the Web server machine.
It is essential that you have installed these Certificates on the machine running IIS 4. You may also download them from the support section of the Website.
Once you have installed the Primary Server Certificate, restart the machine running IIS 4. You must now complete one of the following procedures—the procedure you follow is dependent on the Service Pack that has been implemented on your machine running IIS4.
Service Pack 3
- Install the above certificates in your Internet Explorer by opening each certificate and click Install Certificate.
- You may then use this IIS CA batch file to transfer all root certificates from your Internet Explorer to the IIS Certificate store.
Service Pack 4 or Later
Follow these instructions to install service pack 4 or later versions:
- 1. Double-click the root certificate to open the installation wizard.
- 2. Select Place all certificates in the following store, then click Browse.
- 3. Select Show physical stores and Trusted Root Certification Authorities, then finally Local Computer. Then, click OK and in the wizard, click Next, then click Finish.
- 4. Follow the same steps for the intermediate certificate, but place it in the store for Intermediate Certification Authorities instead.
- 5. Restart your server. Restarting only IIS will not update the SSL Certificate.
- Service pack 4 or later of the SSL certificate is now installed.
Installing the Root and Intermediate Certificates
If you have any problems with the installation of your certificate on IIS 4.x, check that you have installed the root and intermediate certificates correctly.
