SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and shall make it more appealing to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every web hosting plan that we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through our company or through a third-party business. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not need to do anything manually. The only difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything shall be the same. With this feature you could protect the data of your clients and have a risk-free Internet site without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other supplier with any one of our semi-dedicated services. The setup is really basic and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a couple of clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and efforts since you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be protected and any client will feel certain that their information shall be protected considering that 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 can't be used as a URL to access your site.
