SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information that users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. If 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 better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services given 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 Website Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every shared website hosting solution which we offer and regardless if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only can you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a couple of seconds and you will not have to do anything by hand. The one difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your Internet site won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this function you can protect the information of your clients and have a risk-free website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated plans and the setup takes merely two mouse clicks inside the hosting Control Panel no matter if you buy an SSL from our business or from a third-party vendor. There shall not be any difference in terms of how the certificate operates or encodes the data that your site visitors submit, so your website shall be secure without having to spend the additional money for a dedicated IP. The one thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is quite unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your website in this way rather than typing your domain name. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired via our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
