SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data which users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting 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 attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting
packages, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. Due to the fact that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a protected and reliable site without having to spend extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other retailer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service
. The setup is really easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a couple of mouse clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be used for this purpose. This option will save you time and efforts given that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secured and any customer will feel certain that their information will be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not affect the proper performance of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your site.
