SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information that clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required 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 could find much better use for the funds, you could 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 Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each shared hosting solution that we offer and irrespective if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a few seconds and you will not need to do anything manually. The only difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything will be the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a secure website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and the setup takes only two clicks inside the hosting Control Panel regardless if you purchase an SSL from our company or via a third-party supplier. There won't be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encrypts the info your site visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without spending the additional cash for a dedicated IP address. The one thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your website in this way as opposed to inputting your domain name. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought through our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP rather than a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
