Adding Features/SSL

From Lunarpages Web Hosting Wiki

< Adding Features

How can you use a SSL certificate with your Lunarpages web hosting account? You can do this one of two ways, either by using the shared SSL certificate, or enable a Dedicated SSL certificate on your account.

Now why would you need a Dedicated SSL Certificate over the shared one that comes for free with your hosting plan? Shared SSL will not function with ASP, JSP or PHP pages. It will function only with HTML, and cgi/perl based documents/scripts/carts. This is due to security restrictions on the servers. If you require SSL for PHP, ASP or JSP you will need to purchase a Dedicated SSL Certificate and Dedicated IP.

Windows Plan Users: please note that the Windows hosting plan does not have access to the shared SSL certificate.

How Can I Add a Dedicated SSL Certificate to My Web Site?


To purchase a Dedicated SSL Certificate, login to the Customer Account Page with your hosting account user name and password. Once you are in, choose the Upgrades/Addons Menu. To purchase a Dedicated SSL Certificate from the CAP, you must have a valid credit card on record for your account and a Dedicated IP purchased first.

We can also do this for you via the Help Desk. Please send us the following to or via a help desk ticket.

  • Primary Domain Name:
  • User Name:
  • The Last 4 Digits of Your Credit Card:

If you do not have a credit card on record then please provide:

  • Primary Domain:
  • User Name:
  • Postal Address:

Third Party Dedicated Certificate Installations

If you have a Dedicated SSL Certificate that you have purchased from another provider, we can install that for you as an alternative. We charge $14.95 to generate the CSR needed for the third party certificate and a $29.95 installation fee to install the certificate once received. A Dedicated IP is also still a requirement when installing third party SSL certificates.
