SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information that clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your site and shall make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you can avoid the added 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 Web Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our web hosting plans, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of 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 kind of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a protected and reliable Internet site without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You could 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 packages. The setup is really easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with only a couple of mouse clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and work since you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website will be protected and any customer will feel assured that their info will be protected given that using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper performance of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
