Static IP Address Required for SSL Certificate?
Before telling you whether a static ip address is required for an SSL certificate, "What is Shared and Static IP Address?" i will explain briefly. It will be more useful in terms of better understanding of the logic of static ip.
Shared IP Address
Nowadays all Web Hosting services are based on shared IP. So, IP address that comes with the hosting package you bought is shared with the whole web sites in the same server. Therefore is called shared ip address.
While this will lower the price of the hosting package, any one of the websites using the same ip address can cause the shared IP address to be blacklisted due to abuse or unconscious use of the offered service. In such a case, all websites linked to the IP address will be affected. This will seriously affect your email traffic.
Static IP Address
The Static IP address creates additional costs for your hosting package, but it is only for you and opens your site when the IP address is entered into the browser address. Therefore is called static ip address. Also, you will not be affected by any situation other people will be doing.
