Most Important: Generally, a dedicated IP address is required for SSL installation. However, if you have SNI technology available on your server, you can install your SSL certificate on a shared IP address. Check SNI availability for your hostname with your hosting provider prior to SSL certificate activation to avoid any of the known issues that may occur with this type of SSL certificate installation.

Be sure to locate and save the RSA private key that will arrive with your CSR code, as it will be required for the installation. It will not be possible to install the certificate without this code.
