If your site asks for sensitive information from your visitors, such as credit card details, a SSL certificate can help protect them.  Your account comes with a Shared SSL certificate, however you can also use a Dedicated SSL certificate. Not familiar with Shared SSL vs. Dedicated SSL?

If you already have an SSL or wish to order an SSL from a third party SSL vendor, please see our article on Requesting a CSR when Purchasing an SSL Elsewhere.

Our Dedicated SSL certificates are Comodo-issued 256-bit encrypted InstantSSL certificates and are only $99.99 per year.Certificates require a Dedicated IP address for $2.95 per month. This $2.95/month fee is waived if the Dedicated SSL certificate is purchased through Web Hosting Hub.

When a new IP address is assigned it may cause intermittent issues until it fully propagates, which can take up to 24 hours. There is also a one-time $25 install fee for all SSL certificate installations.

How to order a Dedicated SSL Certificate in AMP?

After completing the SSL installation, our support team will send you an email with more information.

  1. Login to AMP.
  2. In the listing of icons under your hosting plan, find and click on the Purchase SSL Certificate icon.
  3. On the next screen, select the SSL Term Length (ie 1 or 2 years). Also enter the Desired Certificate Name. Generally secure. or www. are the most common certificate names, followed by the domain name. For example, a certificate for our website would read www.webhostinghub.com. When you are done click Next.
  4. Enter the contact information for the owner of the SSL certificate. Note that Comodo will check the information you submit against the information given in a WHOIS lookup. If the information differs than it may delay the issuing of your SSL.
  5. Finally, after hitting Next you can choose how you want the SSL billed.  Once you have completed the form, clicking Submit will send the information to our support department.
Congratulations, now you know how to get an SSL certificate for your website!

Hello Rawal,

Thank you for your question. No, the 'www' and 'secure' mentioned in the article are examples of subdomains you may want to have your SSL created for. However, if you order through us, your SSL will work for your domain name with or without SSL. This feature comes automatically.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M

Does this SSL trigger the green URL bar in high security browsers?

Hello Ben,

Any valid SSL certificate should trigger the "green bar" in an internet browser. Security doesn't depend on the type of browser you are using. You could be using a browser that uses the green bar and still conduct unsafe transactions. Security depends on the user's behavior as well as the structures put in place by the web site creator.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Purchased my domain and "PositiveSSL" certificate on namecheap. I did an addon domain to have my domain hosted on webhostinghub. I can't find any online sources to activate the SSL subscription onto webhostinghub. I read that it is possible to activate it even though my domain is on a shared IP address. Looking for help and guidance.
