If you want to protect the info that visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter if you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each hosting package we offer and irrespective if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will install it for you within a few seconds and you will not need to do anything personally. The only difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be identical. With this function you'll be able to protect the info of your customers and have a reliable website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other supplier with any one of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is really basic and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with merely several mouse clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and work as you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be protected and any client will feel assured that their data shall be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not affect the proper functioning of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
