    Hello :)

    It depends if you are attempting to install a service SSL Certificate, or a SSL Certficiate on an account. In order to use install an SSL certificate on an account, you must have a dedicated IP address. A dedicated IP address is an unshared IP address, only used by your domain.

    If you are installing an SSL Certficiate for your services (Service SSL Certs), your shared IP address is used.

    Thank you.

    You can contact you web hosting provider for this. The general market cost for a dedicated IP is around $2.00 a month.
