SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data which users submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given 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 Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every cloud hosting plan which we offer and irrespective if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not have to do anything yourself. The only difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you'll be able to protect the information of your customers and have a risk-free Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated service and the setup takes only a couple of mouse clicks in the hosting Control Panel no matter if you order an SSL from our company or via a third-party supplier. There won't be any difference in terms of how the certificate operates or encrypts the data your website visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without spending the extra funds for a dedicated IP. The one thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's extremely unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your site in this way instead of inputting your domain. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs ordered via our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP instead of a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
