SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data that 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 enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your website and will make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our shared hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any information that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The one big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it this way instead of entering your domain name inside the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated plans and the setup takes just a couple of mouse clicks within the hosting Control Panel irrespective if you purchase an SSL through our business or through a third-party vendor. There won't be any difference in terms of how the certificate works or encodes the information your website visitors submit, so your site shall be protected without having to spend the extra funds for a dedicated IP. The sole thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your site in this way rather than typing your domain name. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased through our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
