How to Purchase a Comodo Private SSL

Solution:

To make sure that no hacker can intercept and misuse information being collected online, our Comodo SSL certificate uses the highest 256 bit encryption to secure and protect your websites data from hackers. If you will be accepting credit card payments online, then a Comodo SSL certificate is right for you. With this critical protection in place, you can feel confident that any information collected online can only be decoded by the intended parties.

To purchase the Comodo Positive SSL Certificate:

  1. Login to your Bluehost cPanel.
  2. Click on the SSL Certificate tab at the top of the screen.
  3. If you have not already purchased a dedicated IP, you may select the checkbox to add the required dedicated IP for $49.00 per year.
  4. Press the "Order SSL Certificate" button. You will be charged for the SSL Certificate (and dedicated IP, if applicable).
  5. The dedicated IP and/or SSL Certificate will now be automatically installed without any further assistance needed from you or Bluehost support.
  6. If you would like to display the Comodo PositiveSSL Seal on your website, Click Here for more information.

Note: Since SSL Certificates are Domain/IP specific, you must first Purchase a Dedicated IP before purchasing or having an SSL Certificate installed on your account. They will NOT work with a shared IP address.

Note: Newly purchased dedicated IPs do take 1-4 hours for internal propagation and up to 24-48 hours for external propagation. During this time you may notice the URL for your website to change and include your account username. Our system uses this to help keep your website online during the IP address change. This is normal and will resolve itself automatically once propagation has completed.
