SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services since 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 Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this type of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a risk-free and trustworthy website without having to spend extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL bought through us or through any other vendor with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. The setup is very easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with only several mouse clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be used for this purpose. This option will save you time and efforts as you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be protected and any client will feel confident that their information will be protected given that using a shared IP address does not influence the proper functioning of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your website.
