How to install SSL certificate for domain in Plesk?

Answer

First of all, you should have a purchased certificate for your website on hands. If you don't have a certificate, you can use a free certificate provided by Let's Encrypt extension. Follow the steps from How to install Plesk extensions and install Let's Encrypt.

  1. Add certificate to a repository navigating to Plesk > Domains > example.com > SSL/TLS Certificates and select Add SSL/TLS Certificate

Note: The path Plesk > Tools & Settings > SSL Certificates is designed to install certificates to secure Plesk sever only and for Onyx versions, it allows you to secure your mail server too. It is not designed to be used by domain's certificates. Check official documentation here.
