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 that it's safe to proceed on your website.

You should have received your certificate from us, a file typically named your_domain_com.crt as well as the CA bundle file containing the intermediate certificates, typically named either dv_chain.txt, ov_chain.txt or ev_chain.txt and downloadable from your SSL control panel.

Follow these instructions to install your certificate and copy the files you received to the server:

 1. Log into the server.
Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools and double-click Internet Services Manager.

2. Right-click the website you wish to install the certificate on, then select Properties

3. From the window that appears, click the Directory Security tab
 

4. Click the Server Certificate button to launch the Certificate Wizard
 
5. Select the option Process the pending request and install the certificate, then click Next
 
6. Browse to the location of the certificate file, then click the Next button
 
7. Check the summary information panel, then click the Next button
8. Click the Next or Finish button to complete the wizard
The certificate should now work! Note that it can sometimes require a restart of IIS to bring the new certificate into effect.
