SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which customers submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use 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

Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting packages, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you can 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 shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. As our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the moment it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and reliable Internet site without having to spend extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated services and the setup takes merely a couple of mouse clicks within the hosting CP no matter if you purchase an SSL through our business or through a third-party vendor. There shall not be any difference in the way the certificate works or encrypts the data which your site visitors submit, so your Internet site shall be secure without spending the extra money for a dedicated IP. The only thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's quite unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your internet site in this way rather than entering your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought through our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address rather than a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
