If you would like to protect the info which visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the data is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the money, our cloud web 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 and every hosting package which we offer and regardless if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall do the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you will not need to do anything personally. The only difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be identical. With this function you can protect the information of your customers and have a risk-free website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL acquired through us or through any other supplier with any of our semi-dedicated service. The setup is really simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with simply a few clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and work as you won't 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 site shall be secure and any customer will feel assured that their info shall be protected since using a shared IP address does not influence the proper functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
