  5. Please note that the complete activation of the Jetpack license requires the installation of a SSL certificate. Select the option "Install my free SSL certificate automatically" if you prefer to issue and install a free SSL certificate automatically. This option is available only if the domain is registered in your account and uses our name servers. If you uncheck this option or if it is not available, you will need to issue and install the SSL certificate later in your Plesk control yourself.
