SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information which users submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our shared web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any data that website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The sole difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it this way rather than typing your domain within the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated service and the setup takes just a couple of clicks inside the hosting Control Panel no matter if you order an SSL from our enterprise or via a third-party vendor. There will not be any difference in the way the certificate functions or encrypts the information that your website visitors submit, so your website will be protected without having to spend the extra cash for a dedicated IP address. The sole thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your internet site in this way instead of keying in your domain. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased via our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
