SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information which customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your website and will make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the money, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact 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 Hosting

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every shared hosting solution we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a few 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 the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be exactly the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the data of your clients and have a reliable website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other retailer with any of our semi-dedicated service. The setup is extremely easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a few mouse clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be used for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the funds you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site will be secured and any customer will feel certain that their data shall be protected given that using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
