SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information that users submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that 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 Web Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every web hosting plan we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you'll not have to do anything by hand. The sole difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the information of your customers and have a reliable website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated services and the setup takes merely two clicks within the hosting CP no matter if you order an SSL through our enterprise or through a third-party supplier. There will not be any difference in terms of how the certificate operates or encrypts the information which your website visitors submit, so your Internet site shall be secure without having to spend the additional cash for a dedicated IP. The sole thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your website in this way instead of inputting your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired via our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address instead of a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
