SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info that clients submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and will make it more appealing to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much 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 only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our hosting solutions, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a few clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, 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 this type of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. As our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and trustworthy Internet site without having to spend more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other retailer with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. The setup is quite easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with just several clicks you'll be able to select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and efforts since you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be protected and any customer will feel assured that their info shall be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
