SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data that customers 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 input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our shared web hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any info that website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it this way instead of inputting your domain inside the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated servers and the setup takes only two mouse clicks in the hosting Control Panel no matter if you buy an SSL from our company or through a third-party vendor. There shall not be any difference with regards to how the certificate works or encodes the information that your site visitors submit, so your website will be secure without spending any additional funds for a dedicated IP. The one thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your site in this way as opposed to entering your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained via our company and if you select it and you choose 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 any action on your end.
