If you wish to protect the info which visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any data exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real content, so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and goods online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the info is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every shared web hosting solution which we offer and irrespective if the SSL is acquired through our company or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall handle the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you won't have to do anything manually. The one difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a risk-free website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other retailer with any one of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is incredibly easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with only a few mouse clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts as you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secured and any client will feel assured that their info shall be protected given that using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your site.
