SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data which users submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact 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 Website Hosting

A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you buy it from our company or from some other seller and regardless of the website hosting service which you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you shall find this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is picked inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP address, therefore once you order and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall work in the same exact way, so any data which the visitors submit will be encoded. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain within a web browser, the site shall not appear.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other supplier with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is very easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with simply several clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be used for this purpose. This option will save you time and work considering that you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secure and any customer will feel assured that their info shall be protected given that using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your website.
