SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and will make it more attractive to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every shared website hosting package which we offer and no matter if the SSL is acquired through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may 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 will not have to do anything personally. The only difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your clients and have a secure site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other supplier with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated plans. The setup is incredibly simple and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with only a few clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work since you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the money you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site will be secure and any customer will feel assured that their data will be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper functioning of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
