When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate.
