SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info that clients 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 enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a secure and reliable website without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated services and the setup takes only 2 clicks in the hosting Control Panel no matter if you buy an SSL through our business or through a third-party vendor. There will not be any difference in the way the certificate operates or encodes the data that your visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without spending the additional money for a dedicated IP address. The only thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your website in this way instead of inputting your domain. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained through our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP address 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.
