SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information which customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is usually 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 could find far better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our hosting solutions, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Given that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and trustworthy site without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other retailer with any of our semi-dedicated hosting service. The setup is incredibly easy and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply several mouse clicks you could select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work since you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the funds you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be protected and any client will feel certain that their information will be protected as using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
