  3. Click ‘Upload next to ‘Certificate’ and browser to where you downloaded the Securly certificate and click ‘Save’. 
  4. Click ‘Save & Publish’. 

Later this Fall, Securly's current SSL Certificate will expire. We have provisioned a brand new SSL Certificate available below which expires in 2034. While to get up and running today you only need to have the original SSL Certificate Installed, we recommend that you install both SSL Certificates at the same time to ensure when the original expires, you are at no loss of service.
