SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info that clients submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given that 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 Web Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our shared web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. If you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any details that visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it in this way instead of typing your domain name inside the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and the setup takes only 2 mouse clicks inside the hosting Control Panel regardless if you buy an SSL through our enterprise or via a third-party vendor. There won't be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encodes the info your site visitors submit, so your website shall be secure without spending any additional money for a dedicated IP address. The one thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your website in this way as opposed to typing your domain name. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs ordered through our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address rather than a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
