SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are 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 due to the fact 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 Cloud Web Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting solutions, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and reliable site without having to spend more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated hosting service and the setup takes just 2 clicks in the hosting CP irrespective if you buy an SSL through our company or from a third-party provider. There won't be any difference with regards to how the certificate functions or encrypts the data that your website visitors submit, so your website shall be secure without having to spend any additional money for a dedicated IP. The one thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's quite unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your site in this way instead of inputting your domain. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased via our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address rather than a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
