SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data which customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your website and will make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you could avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our website hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires no more than 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any data that website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The only big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it that way instead of inputting your domain in the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated servers and the setup takes merely 2 clicks in the hosting CP irrespective if you order an SSL from our enterprise or through a third-party vendor. There shall not be any difference in the way the certificate operates or encrypts the data that your visitors submit, so your website will be protected without spending the extra funds for a dedicated IP address. The one thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your website in this way rather than inputting your domain. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased through our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address instead of a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
