SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info that clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by making use 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 Web Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every cloud web hosting package which we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a couple of seconds and you will not have to do anything yourself. The one difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you can protect the data of your customers and have a reliable Internet site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated plans and the setup takes just two clicks within the hosting CP regardless if you obtain an SSL from our enterprise or via a third-party vendor. There will not be any difference with regards to how the certificate works or encrypts the information your site visitors submit, so your website will be protected without spending any additional money for a dedicated IP. The sole thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your internet site in this way rather than inputting your domain name. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired through our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP instead of a dedicated one, our system will set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
