SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the funds, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you buy it from our company or from some other vendor and regardless of the cloud hosting service you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL through us, you'll find this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is picked inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP address, thus once you obtain and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You can save the funds that you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will function in the same exact way, so any info the website visitors submit shall be encrypted. The only difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain inside an Internet browser, the site shall not display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other dealer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is really easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a few clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the funds you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secure and any customer will feel certain that their info will be protected given that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper functioning of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
