SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information that clients submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services as our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting packages, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy site without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL acquired through us or through any other retailer with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. The setup is quite basic and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a few 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 used for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and work as you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the funds you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website shall be protected and any customer will feel assured that their data shall be protected as using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate performance of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
