How to Enable SSL in Hostinger

Welcome to Ben’s Experience! In this tutorial, I will show you how to enable SSL in Hostinger. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificates are essential for securing your website and protecting your visitors’ data. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get your SSL certificate installed on Hostinger.

Step 1: Log in to Your Hostinger Account

First, log in to your Hostinger account using your credentials. Once you’re inside, navigate to the top menu and click on “Websites.”

Step 2: Access Your Website Dashboard

From the “Websites” section, select the website you want to install the SSL certificate on. Click on “Dashboard” next to your chosen website to proceed.

Step 3: Navigate to Security Settings

On the left side menu, click on “Security.” This will open a drop-down list where you can find the “SSL” option. Click on “SSL” to continue.

Step 4: Select and Install SSL

You will see a list of websites associated with your Hostinger account. Select the website you want to enable SSL for and click on the “Install SSL” button.

Step 5: Wait for the Installation

The installation process will begin, and your SSL certificate will be installed. This process may take up to an hour, so be patient.

Step 6: Verify SSL Installation

To check if the SSL installation was successful, visit your website and look for the HTTPS in the URL instead of HTTP. This indicates that your site is now secure.


Enabling SSL in Hostinger is a straightforward process that significantly enhances your website’s security. It not only protects your visitors’ data but also improves your site’s SEO ranking. If you have any questions or run into any issues, feel free to leave a comment below.
