IP Address

Yes, you can secure an IP address with an SSL Certificate. However, only some specific SSL Certificates will allow you to do that. Here are those SSL Certificates:
– Comodo InstantSSL Premium

Please note that this certificate is a Business Validation SSL Certificate, which means that you need to have a registered company in order to be issued this SSL certificate.

Note: The following certificates used to secure IP addresses in the past, but they no longer do so:
– GeoTrust TrueBusinessID
– Thawte Web Server SSL
– Symantec Secure Site
– Symantec Secure Site PRO

Certain SSL Certificates allow you to secure an IP address, only if it’s a public IP address. The validation process for IP addresses is slightly different, so please follow the guidelines below.
