SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information which customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact 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 Shared Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every shared hosting plan which we offer and no matter if the SSL is ordered through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a matter of seconds and you'll not need to do anything by hand. The one difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you could protect the information of your customers and have a reliable website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes just two clicks inside the hosting Control Panel irrespective if you get an SSL through our business or through a third-party provider. There won't be any difference with regards to how the certificate functions or encrypts the data your visitors submit, so your Internet site shall be protected without having to spend the additional cash for a dedicated IP address. The sole thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your site in this way instead of typing your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased via our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
