Custom SSL allows you to install your own custom SSL certificate using a shared IP address using SNI. SNI is widely supported in modern browsers, but can potentially cause compatibility issues with old browser versions and some mobile devices (IE6 on Windows XP or older).
This option will allow you to install your own SSL Certificate, Private Key, and CA/Chain-Bundle (if you have one). You need to click on each option to open the text box in which you will paste the data for the SSL Certificate, the Private Key, and the CA/Chain-Bundle. Within a minute or less the SSL certificate will be installed.
SNI is widely supported in modern browsers, but older versions and some mobile devices might encounter compatibility issues. Shared IP addresses are used with SNI SSL.
