SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the info that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

A shared IP could be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you get it from our company or from another seller and regardless of the cloud website hosting service which you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is picked within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP, so once you order and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will function in the same exact way, so any information which the visitors submit shall be encrypted. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain inside a web browser, the Internet site will not appear.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other dealer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is quite easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely several clicks you can pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be employed for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secure and any client will feel certain that their info will be protected as using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate performance of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
