As a Reseller, you will most likely have customers that require SSL certificates for their websites. You can purchase SSL’s from the InMotion Store, then install them for your customers.
Resellers also have the option of using FreeSSL certificates with their domains. For more information, please see How to Add FreeSSL Certificates to Reseller Accounts. Note that if your reseller sites are handling critical data such as credit card transactions or other sensitive data, then it is suggested that you purchase an SSL certificate with a dedicated IP address. Need more dedicated IP’s? Be sure to check out our newest Reseller VPS hosting plans that include more!
