What is an SSL certificate
SSL-certificates are electronic documents, confirming with the highest degree of reliability that certain transactions are related to a particular server. Also, SSL certificates create a secure channel through which data is transmitted between the client and server in an encrypted form, to prevent interception and modification of data during transmission. SSL-certificates are required to be able to use the SSL protocol on servers.
If you use a certificate not signed by a certification authority (a self-signed certificate), the visitors of your website will get warnings saying the website is not safe.
To use an SSL certificate, you must use a separate IP address for the website. Individual IP addresses are available for any hosting / servers plan from Powerhosting.
