SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info that customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your site and will make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud website 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

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting solutions, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Since our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and reliable Internet site without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes just a couple of mouse clicks inside the hosting Control Panel irrespective if you buy an SSL from our business or from a third-party supplier. There will not be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encodes the information which your site visitors submit, so your site will be protected without having to spend the extra money for a dedicated IP. The sole thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your site in this way instead of keying in your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought through our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address rather than a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
