Yes and no. This depends on the type of certificate you are using. We have free SSL certificates available to all Kinsta customers. These are provided from Let’s Encrypt and require no additional information to install on your WordPress site. If you are using your own custom SSL certificate you will need the server type, CSR code, and RSA key. Please see our guide here on how to add an SSL certificate and what to select for each value.
