Why does my website hosted with firebase still complain about SSL Certificate?

Honestly, your question is not clear with an issue like what kind of SSL error that you are facing while using SSL certificate on firebase.

However, we could list out the potential issue that you might be facing or might you are not aware with few of important protocols when you host a website on firebase.

Let’s get into it.

  • Firebase uses shared IP address so you can not install your own SSL certificate.
  • In order to use a third party SSL certificate like Symantec, RapidSSL, GeoTrust, and Thawte, you need the dedicated IP address for a website. or else, you need SNI or Subject Alternative Name tech

  • In order to use a third party SSL certificate like Symantec, RapidSSL, GeoTrust, and Thawte, you need the dedicated IP address for a website. or else, you need SNI or Subject Alternative Name technology in your hosting panel. For SNI technology, you should talk to your hosting provider.
  • In some cases, Firebase takes hours or days to update your SSL certificate on your website.
  • The most common SSL certificate error is domain name mismatch error, it happens when you process a domain name which does not match with your issued certificate. And, it creates an issue while connect your website to a particular format. Hence, make sure that your domain name should match with an SSL certificate.
  • You should advisable to check with your connection status from Firebase Dashboard that it is connect or pending. It usually happens when you check your website with pending status in Firebase.
  • Last but not least, you should verify your SSL certificate through SSL checker tool. It’s available on our official website;
  • SSL Checker Online to Validate Certificate Information

We wish that we had given the possible reasons and solution to get ride off from your SSL certificate errors.

Thanks, wish you good luck!

Well there are many reasons to get complain about SSL certificate.

  1. Certificate Not Installed or Private Certificate Installed.
    In this case you will get SSL certificate message where it will indicate your server does not have valid SSL installed or installed certificate is not valid for your website.
  2. Certificate Incomplete
    If your certificate is not full or is missing CA-Bundles or other aspects then browsers might not completely understand your SSL certificate and might show you SSL error.
  3. Mixed Content
    While your website has valid certificate installed but still you cannot get the Green Secure

  2. Certificate Incomplete

  3. Mixed Content
    While your website has valid certificate installed but still you cannot get the Green Secure Pad Lock on your address bar, then it is probably your website consists of Mixed Content. You website support https but some of the contents like images, css, js, fonts might be still called using http link. So make sure all your links are in https .

In theory, issuers charge money to offset the cost of verifying your identity. In practice, consumers pay through the nose because they don't have much choice.

Technically, there's nothing stopping you from setting up your own certificate authority (CA) and issuing certificates for free. Many people do that when they have content which only goes out to a small group of users and just want some valid certificate to sign with. (Open-source VPN packages are a good example, but I'm sure there are others.)

Many people do that when they have content which only goes out to a small group of users and just want some valid certificate to sign with. (Open-source VPN packages are a good example, but I'm sure there are others.)

The problem is that people on the Internet generally don't trust each other. You might say your certificate is signed by ACME CA, but that doesn't mean anything to people who don't trust ACME either. Unless the trust chain leads back to an authority that everyone agrees on, your certificate is worthless. All it says is that someone who claims to be you has a piece of data that "proves" their identity because that guy over there says it's legit.

So how do users decide who to trust? They've got three choices:

  1. Trust everybody. (A bad idea.)
  2. Track down and audit the authority behind every certificate they encounter. (Not practical.)
  3. Rely on a pre-screened list of authorities provided by their browser. (This is what actually happens.)


Companies like VeriSign make it their business to make sure their CAs get onto those lists. Different browsers trust slightly different sets of authorities, so companies recognized by the most browsers have a competitive advantage. (That mostly matters because a certificate that's signed by a non-approved CA brings up a scary warning that the site shouldn't be trusted. People who need SSL certificates usually need their users' trust, so they have no choice but to get a certificate which won't bring up that message.)

Are certificate prices reasonable? Maybe, maybe not. Some companies try to charge even more with price tiers that add more features, but a lot of them are basically gimmicks.

SSL certificates are available for FREE from Let's Encrypt. However, you are showing the price for an Extended Validation Certificate, which is a whole different thing. EV-SSL certificates are a higher level of SSL validation, usually reserved for financial institutions.

Let’s step back for a minute and ask, what does SSL (or technically, TLS) do?

An SSL certificate provides to a site visitor a mathematically provable operation that some party (a Certificate Authority) has certified (validated) that the site you are visiting is really who they say they are.

An SSL certificate provides to a site visitor a mathematically provable operation that some party (a Certificate Authority) has certified (validated) that the site you are visiting is really who they say they are.

So, how does a Certificate Authority KNOW?

Most Certificate Authorities have some simple challenge to test that the certificate requestor controls the domain. This is usually some combination of DNS and a web site. For most sites, this works fine.

However, this system can fail in several ways.

If someone can somehow fake the DNS information and fool the certificate authority, they may be able to get a certificate for a domain that they do not own. This is not easy, but a motivated criminal might be able to do such a thing for, say, a bank website.

If someone can compromise the internal certificate authority infrastructure, as happened with DigiNotar, a criminal party might obtain valid certificates for major web sites.

Alternatively, a hacker might install a new rogue root authority in a browser and just issue fake certificates from that authority for major websites.

The Extended Validation Certificate is a defense against these certification attacks. The Certificate Authorities have to undergo much more rigorous vetting, and certificate requests require substantial off-line manual verification. The root keys are hard-coded in the software and no new roots can be added without a software upgrade. The attack surface of an EV-SSL certificate is smaller, but the requirements to issue one are more onerous and therefore the price is much higher.

First of all, I would like to ask you a question that after creating a website what is the most important thing which you should do, Think yourself. You all must have seen after creating a website that Google shows the HTTP sign before your domain name, exactly but what it is?

Many of you might not know but it is the indication that your website is not secured and can be taken or hacked therefore for them we have provided the steps below through which you can protect your website.

Many of you might not know but it is the indication that your website is not secured and can be taken or hacked therefore for them we have provided the steps below through which you can protect your website. The process through which it is done is known as SSL. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security protocol for establishing encrypted links between a web server and a browser in online communication.

Below are the steps which you can follow to install your SSL certificate and protect your running website.

Note: Do not perform any action which is not there in the below points.

1. You first have to open a website name sslforfree.com(from here you will be having an SSL certificate for your website) and in the search, column add your website name such as www.domainname.com

2. Just after that, it will provide you with three options, one for the Automatic FTP Verification, next for the Manual Verification, and the last for manual Verification (DNS). Click on the second option "Manual Verification". Scroll the window and click on the button mentioning "Manually Verify Domain"

3. When you will again scroll the window you will get the option to download the file, (Download File #1, Download File #2)For downloading these file click on them and the file will be downloaded.

4. So now login to your Cpanel of your website by entering domainname.com/cpanel and click on the option of file manager.

5. Now, you have to visit the foldername "public_html" and in that create its sub-folder with a name as "well-known". Open the folder "well-known" and click on the +folder option placed on the top left side and create a new folder with a name as "acme-challenge".

6. Open the folder created recently and click on the upload option mention above and upload both the files which were downloaded from sslforfree.com. Go back to the website from where the certificates were downloaded and open the links mentioned below. (if the coding comes on the top of the blank page that means your SSL has been downloaded.

If the above options will be done correctly, your website will be secured but before that,

7. scroll down the window and click the "Download SSL certificate" button. As soon as you will click on the button, it will show you three certificates, one with CRT name, Private key and last with the CA Bundle.

8. Go back to your cpanel's home page and search for the option of SSL/TLS in security column and open it. Click on the fourth option from the following which says "manage SSL sites" and then enters the domain name for which the process has been taken(for which the SSL Certificate was download)

9. So now, from the sslforfree.com copy all the certificate one by one and paste it in your cpanel(above mention place) and install the certificates from cpanel. now you SSL has been installed and fixed.

10. At last login to your WordPress by entering the same domain name (domainname.com/wp-admin) and select the option of security and general. You will get an option for protocol, change it from HTTP to HTTPS.

As soon as you will perform these all operations successfully, your website will be protected from unnecessary viruses and security bugs.

What is SSL?

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and, in short, it's the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems, preventing criminals from reading and modifying any information transferred, including potential personal details.

SSL certificates are what enable websites to move from HTTP to HTTPS, which is more secure. An SSL certificate is a data file hosted in a website's origin server. SSL certificates make SSL/TLS encryption possible, and they contain the website's public key and the website's id

SSL certificates are what enable websites to move from HTTP to HTTPS, which is more secure. An SSL certificate is a data file hosted in a website's origin server. SSL certificates make SSL/TLS encryption possible, and they contain the website's public key and the website's identity, along with related information. Devices attempting to communicate with the origin server will reference this file to obtain the public key and verify the server's identity. The private key is kept secret and secure. SSL certificates verify that a client is talking to the correct server that actually owns the domain. This helps prevent domain spoofing and other kinds of attacks.

With my personal experience I can tell you that free SSL is safe. This certificate offers the highest level of encryption and can offer your site immediate access results. Do not let the “free” part of the proposition fool you. Free SSL certificates offer the same level of protection as paid ones.

Importance of SSL is to secure communication between client and server.

When a user enters data in to SSL protected website, no other person or bot can access the data.

How SSL Certificate Works on a Website?

When a user tries to open a SSL secured website on browser

  • The browser first attempts to connect to that website.
  • The very next step is the browser quickly request to the web server of the website to identify itself.
  • In respond to the browser’s request, the server sends the copy of its SSL certificate
  • Now the browser checks the SSL certificate sent by the server, and respond back with a messag

  • To start the SSL encrypted session the server sends a digital signed acknowledgement to the browser.
  • The encrypted data is transmitted securely between the web browser and the web server and finally HTTPS appears.
