SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data that users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you could avoid the extra 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 Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting packages, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. As our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically once it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a protected and trustworthy website without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Any SSL certificate could be employed with our specially set up shared IPs, so if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you could use this option with just several clicks when you install a certificate which you obtain through us or through some other vendor. For the SSLs we offer you can also take advantage of an extra function and have our system set everything up for you. Thus the moment you approve the SSL, the shared IP address shall be set for the specific domain or subdomain and the certificate shall be installed with no action required on your end, and thus any data that site visitors submit on your site will be protected. The SSL shall do the job in the same exact way no matter if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the one thing which is different between the two setups is that typing the shared IP as a URL inside a web browser won't open your site.
