Certificate Installation Requirements

In order to use the SSL feature your site must have it's own static (dedicated) IP address.  If you don't have a dedicated IP address, you will get an error message when you access the SSL menu:


Could not execute your request

Details:  You are not allowed to modify your SSL


Contact your web host for information on obtaining a dedicated IP address.  Please note that some web hosts don't offer dedicated IP's, and hosts that do usually charge extra for this feature.

Why do I need an owned IP address? 

Triple DES certificates don't work through DirectAdmin.
