SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data that users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our shared hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary data for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any information that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The only difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it this way instead of entering your domain within the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes only a couple of clicks inside the hosting CP irrespective if you purchase an SSL from our company or via a third-party supplier. There won't be any difference in the way the certificate operates or encrypts the data that your visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without having to spend the additional money for a dedicated IP address. The sole thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is quite unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your site in this way as opposed to inputting your domain. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired through our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP address 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.
