Do I Need to get a Dedicated IP so I Can Have my Free SSL Installed

Updated on Jun 11, 2019

Since cPanel version 11.48, you no longer need a dedicated IP address for the installation of an SSL certificate on your domain. This means that there would be no need to change your IP address and ABSOLUTELY NO DOWNTIME for your website, thanks to the SNI (Server Name Indicator) cPanel feature.

I am really glad to inform all of our current and feature clients that we provide a FREE SSL certificate with our E-Commerce hosting package. Since cPanel version 11.48, you no longer need a dedicated IP address for the installation of SSL certificate for your website. This means that there would be no need to change your IP address and NO downtime for your website thanks to the SNI (Server Name Indicator) technology.

We offer a free GlobalSign SSL certificate on each E-Commerce hosting plan. However, since a dedicated IP address is no longer needed for the SSL, we no longer offer an IP for free on the same package. This is an add-on service and if you still want to get it, you can do so via your Client Area -> Order -> Product Addons -> Dedicated IP Address.

Update: As of late 2016 we no longer offer the Dedicated IP Address addon for Shared Hosting Packages. However, you can still purchase this addon if you have a VPS or Dedicated Server with us.
