SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that customers submit on a website. 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 information, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every website hosting solution which we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a few seconds and you'll not need to do anything manually. The one difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear in case 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 could protect the data of your customers and have a reliable site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated hosting services and the setup takes merely a couple of mouse clicks inside the hosting Control Panel irrespective if you order an SSL from our enterprise or from a third-party supplier. There won't be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encrypts the information that your visitors submit, so your website will be protected without having to spend the additional money for a dedicated IP. The only thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's highly unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your internet site in this way as opposed to keying in your domain. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs ordered through our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP as opposed to a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
