What are User-Managed SSL Certificates?

For customers with a server, Instant Domain or stand-alone SSL package

User-Managed SSL Certificates offer you the freedom of setting up your SSL certificate via Apache, nginx, Plesk or any other method. 


When setting up an SSL certificate for a server package, Instant Domain package, or a stand-alone SSL purchased as an add-on, you will receive the private key during setup in IONOS. Validation, installation and certificate renewal will have to be completed manually.
