What is an IP Address SSL Certificate?

IP Address SSL certificate

An IP address SSL certificate secures a public IP instead of the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name), such as yourdomain.com. The IP SSL certificate encrypts connections directly with the public IP address (e.g., It offers the same encryption strength and security benefits as any other SSL certificate and adheres to the CA/Browser Forum guidelines.

IP Address SSL Benefits

The main benefits of securing an IP Address with an SSL certificate are a verified identity, noticeable encryption, and extra IP address use.

Verified Identity

An IP address is less indicative than a domain name, and the SSL padlock alone isn’t the ultimate indicator of trust. Upon inspecting your certificate details, users will learn more about your business status and navigate your pages with peace of mind.

Noticeable Encryption

Whatever your reasons for using a public IP address, securing it with an SSL certificate is now a must. Browsers will flag your connection as “not secure” if it’s not over the HTTPS protocol. As a result, visitors will see a security warning instead of your content.

Extra IP Address Use

Some services require IP SSL authentication, which can be enabled with a public IP address SSL certificate. Moreover, with an IP SAN certificate, you can encrypt multiple IPs under a single SSL installation, streamlining the entire configuration process.

What IP Addresses Can I secure With an SSL Certificate?

You can secure a public IP address with a commercial SSL certificate. If you want to secure a private/intranet IP address, it’s technically possible only with a self-signed certificate, but browsers won’t trust it.

Today, IP Address SSL certificates are available to regular websites and officially registered organizations that need to protect a public IP address. Depending on your needs, you may request a DV certificate to secure multiple SANs or a BV certificate to encrypt one IP address.

Excellent customer service when I ordered the wrong cert! The support team then helped me get the correct cert and refunded me on the incorrect cert I bought! Very fast and a happy customer.

One of the most reliable SSL brands. If you need to secure subdomains and can afford it, don’t think twice. Get it.

The price seems fair for an EV certificate, especially the two-year deal. Unlike my previous provider, which I won’t advertise here, at SSL Dragon, the buying steps are easier and better explained.

Always a pleasure doing business with SSL Dragon. Thawte certificates consistently deliver the highest encryption and customer trust.

Was assigned to secure several NGO sites. Picked this certificate because of a higher warranty and reasonable price. It’s always a pleasure to work with SSL Dragon.

Simply the best. Easy to buy and configure. Plenty of features. Can display the site seal in different languages as well.

A top-class product from a reputable company. Credits to SSL Dragon as well, for a smooth buying experience and excellent price.

This is the third SSL Certificate I buy from SSL Dragon, and the first one from GeoTrust. All I can say is the certs work as described in the specs, and the support is very friendly.

The SSL wizard recommended this certificate for our e-stores. We’re already on the third renewal, and during all these years, didn’t have a single issue with it.
