How to Generate a Free SSL certificate?

Secure Socket Layer certificates are digital files which provide privacy and security for your both domain and user’s personal information. On installing an SSL certificate to your domain, the protocol HTTP will change to HTTPS, so that it makes your domain's communications between a website and an internal browser encrypted and secure. In the Livebox streaming server, you can generate your SSL certificates cost-free within a few steps.

Note: Renew your SSL certificates every 12 months.

  • The domain with no SSL certificate encryption is those with the “Not secure” indication on the URL tab.
