SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information that customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required 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 could find better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by making use 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

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Due to the fact that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically as soon as it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a protected and reliable Internet site without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other vendor with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting services. The setup is very easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a few mouse clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts as you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website will be secure and any customer will feel confident that their data will be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
