NOTE: When you add a certificate, it is not installed automatically onto the domain or assigned to an IP address, but only added to the Certificate repository.

You can assign a certificate to an IP address at the Client's IP pool, at the IP aliasing management page, and during hosting creation on an exclusively-granted IP.
