You will need to wait for the verification to complete. This can take up to an hour. During this time, the Status of the SSL will be “Pending Verification”. The Status will change to Active once this completes.

You will need to download the appropriate SSL from your account, depending on the server type you are using, and install this on your device.

From your No-IP account, click My Services at the left, then SSL Certificates. Find your TrustCor Standard DV SSL and click the Download button.

Install SSL on Your Server

Select the SSL file type in accordance to the server you are installing it on. If you do not know this information, we advise doing some research before purchasing this SSL, as we can not provide server support. We recommend the PEM Chain, as this includes all the necessary certificates in one file.
