SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra 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 Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every cloud web hosting package that we offer and regardless if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a couple of seconds and you won't have to do anything personally. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this function you could protect the data of your customers and have a secure site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other dealer with any of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is incredibly basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a few clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work given that you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be secure and any client will feel certain that their data shall be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not affect the proper operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
