SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info that users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your website and shall make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional 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
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Due to the fact that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a secure and trustworthy website without spending extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other dealer with any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. The setup is extremely easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with only a few clicks you can pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts considering that you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website will be protected and any client will feel confident that their info will be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate functioning of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
