SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data that 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 type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services due to the fact that 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 Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting packages, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, therefore 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'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy website without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes just a couple of clicks within the hosting Control Panel regardless if you purchase an SSL via our company or via a third-party vendor. There shall not be any difference in the way the certificate functions or encrypts the data your visitors submit, so your website shall be secure without having to spend the extra funds for a dedicated IP. The sole thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's quite unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your website in this way instead of inputting your domain name. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased through our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP as opposed to a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
