SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore 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 inviting to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you acquire it from us or from another vendor and regardless of the cloud website hosting service that you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you will come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP, therefore once you acquire and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You can save the cash you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall work in the exact same way, so any information which the visitors submit will be encoded. The sole difference is that if you enter the shared IP address instead of your domain inside a web browser, the website won't display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL acquired through us or through any other dealer with any of our semi-dedicated service. The setup is quite simple and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a couple of clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be employed for this purpose. This option will save you time and work as you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be secured and any customer will feel certain that their information shall be protected since using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your website.
