SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data that users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and will make it more appealing to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you can avoid the extra 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 Web Hosting

Given that we offer SSL certificates with our web hosting solutions, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, 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 set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference shall be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically once 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 risk-free and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

Any SSL certificate could be used with our specially set up shared IPs, so if you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can use this option with just a few clicks when you install a certificate that you acquire through us or through another retailer. For the SSLs that we offer you are also able to take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. That way the minute you approve the SSL, the shared IP will be set for the particular domain name or subdomain and the certificate shall be installed with no action expected on your end, and thus any info that site visitors submit on your Internet site shall be protected. The SSL shall work in the same exact way regardless if it's set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the 1 thing which is different between the two setups is that inputting the shared IP address as a URL inside a web browser will not open your Internet site.
