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.
