How to Purchase/Cancel an SSL from AMP
For more information about SSL certificates and when you might need one for your website, please see our article: What is SSL and why is it important?
Please note, the following information is for customers ordering an SSL through InMotion Hosting. If you have (or will be ordering) an SSL from a separate (third party) SSL vendor, please see our article on requesting installation of a third party SSL.
Shared vs Dedicated SSL
Shared SSL Certificates
If you are on a shared server (business class hosting), you will have access to the shared SSL certificate on the server. To access this, you can create https links in your website files that use the secure server name. The secure server name is always ‘secure##’, with ## being the number of your server. Your server number is listed in your account’s technical details in AMP.
For example, if you are on the server biz 30 .inmotionhosting.com and your username is ‘ userna1 ‘, your secure URL will be:
https://secure 30 .inmotionhosting.com/
Please note that the above URL will be visible when visitors hover over links on your website.
Please keep in mind that if you use the shared SSL, every link will need to use the same link structure as above. Shared SSL’s only work using the URL format shown above (https://secure##.inmotionhosting.com/
For more information specifically on Shared SSL certificates, please see our article on How does the shared SSL work?.
Dedicated SSL Certificates
In this section:
To have the SSL certificate installed, your domain WHOIS information must match the information for the SSL certificate. SSL certificate requests sent to our certificate provider that have mismatching information will NOT be processed. After completing the SSL installation, our support team will send you an email with more information. Click here to learn more about Dedicated Hosting.
Our Dedicated SSL certificates are 256-bit encrypted Comodo SSL certificates and are only $99.99 per year. Certificates require a Dedicated IP address for $2.00 per month. This $2.00/month fee is waived if the Dedicated SSL certificate is purchased through InMotion Hosting. There is also a one-time $25 installation fee for all SSL certificates.
When a dedicated SSL is installed, a new IP address must be assigned and may cause intermittent issues until it fully propagates, which can take up to 24 hours.
