Digital Server Certificate Installation Instructions

How to install your Digital Server Certificate

Your Digital Server Certificate will be emailed to you upon issuance and it will be available for download in the SecureTrust™ Control Center.


Reviewing the files received from SecureTrust™

When your certificate is issued, SecureTrust will email a zip file that contains your certificate in the following formats:

  • .pem - This file contains a Base64 encoded ASCII concatenation of your certificate and the intermediate certificate that your certificate was issued from. It contains the "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----" and the "-----END CERTIFICATE-----" lines around each certificate.
  • .cer - This file contains a Base64 encoded ASCII format of only your certificate with the "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----" and the "-----END CERTIFICATE-----" lines around it.
  • .p7b - This file contains a Base64 encoded ASCII representation of your certificate and the intermediate certificate that your certificate was issued from. It contains the "-----BEGIN PKCS7-----" and the "-----END PKCS7-----" lines around the certificates.
  • .der - This file contains a binary representation of your certificate.
  • chain.cer - This file contains a Base64 encoded ASCII representation of the intermediate certificate.

You can also login to Control Center and view your issued certificates. When you click on a certificate and scroll to the bottom of the page, you can download the certificate zip folder.

Installation varies from server to server so please use the search box to narrow down the server list or select your server from the list below.
