SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information that clients submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your site and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our web hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a few 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 configured especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a protected and reliable site without spending extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other supplier with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is very easy and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a couple of clicks you could select 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 efforts as you won't have 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 shall be protected and any client will feel certain that their info will be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not influence the proper performance of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
