SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that customers submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your site and shall make it more inviting to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the capital, you could avoid the extra expense by taking advantage 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 Shared Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your website 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 could use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the moment it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a protected and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Any SSL certificate can be employed with our specifically configured shared IPs, thus if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to use this option with simply a few mouse clicks when you install a certificate which you purchase through us or through some other vendor. For the SSLs that we offer you are also able to take advantage of an extra function and have our system set everything up for you. This way as soon as you approve the SSL, the shared IP address will be set for the given domain or subdomain and the certificate will be installed with no action required on your end, so any data that site visitors submit on your Internet site shall be secure. The SSL will perform in the same exact way regardless if it's set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the 1 thing that is different between the two setups is that typing the shared IP address as a URL within a browser won't open your Internet site.
