SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data that customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you could avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every shared web hosting solution that we offer and no matter if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a matter of seconds and you will not have to do anything yourself. The only difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your Internet site won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be the same. With this function you can protect the info of your clients and have a risk-free site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated packages and the setup takes merely two mouse clicks in the hosting CP no matter if you buy an SSL from our company or from a third-party supplier. There shall not be any difference with regards to how the certificate functions or encrypts the data your site visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without having to spend any additional cash for a dedicated IP. The sole thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is highly unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your internet site in this way rather than keying in your domain name. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought via our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address instead of a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
