New to SSL - have a couple questions

Post by kgeld » Thu Oct 29, 2015 1:09 pm


I've just got our Cerberus FTP running, and, naturally our web client users are getting warnings. Mostly, this is just an annoyance, however some of them are choosing not to use the web link. I've been tasked with solving the warnings.

This led me to SSL. I've been looking at Comodo (mostly because they have a 90 day free one that I can use to test).
Since these are tied to domains, does that mean I need to purchase a domain name for my FTP? Would a subdomain work? I have it set to a subdomain now and the web portal works, I don't think I know how to install an SSL cert to a subdomain.

I guess I'm just looking for some overall advice, which cert/service to buy, how to get it installed properly, etc.

Thanks folks.
