SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and shall make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services since 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 Website Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting plans, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. As our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically once it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and trustworthy website without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

Any SSL certificate could be employed with our specifically set up shared IPs, so if you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can use this option with just a few clicks when you install a certificate which you acquire through us or through any other vendor. For the SSLs that we offer you are also able to take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. That way once you approve the SSL, the shared IP address shall be set for the specific domain name or subdomain and the certificate will be installed with no action expected on your end, and so any data that visitors submit on your site will be secure. The SSL shall perform in the exact same way no matter if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the one thing that's different between the two setups is that inputting the shared IP address as a URL within a web browser shall not open your site.
