Installing SSL Certificate Notes

Please note: Normally, a dedicated IP address is required to install a SSL certificate. However, you may install your SSL certificate on a shared IP address using the Server Name Indication (SNI) protocol extension available in your cPanel. You can learn more about the differences between a dedicated IP and SNI technology in this article. When contacting our support team regarding this issue, please specify whether you wish to order a dedicated IP address or have your SSL installed on a server's shared IP.
