A dedicated IP is not required for installing an SSL certificate on your Linux or Windows Shared Hosting packages since Server Name Indication (SNI) is supported on all our servers.

What is Server Name Indication?

Server Name Indication (SNI) support allows you to host multiple SSL certificates for different domains on the same IP address. Users who are on shared servers that support SNI can install their own certificates without a dedicated IP address.

SNI indicates which hostname is being contacted by the browser at the beginning of the 'handshake' process. This allows a server to connect multiple SSL Certificates to one IP address.

How do I install a SSL Certificate on my hosting package?

You can view the instructions to install your certificate here.

I still require a dedicated IP for my hosting, how do I purchase it?

Please contact our Support Team to have the dedicated IP added to your hosting plan.
