If you wish to protect the information which visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real content, thus if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big revenue, so to save you the cash, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every cloud web hosting package we offer and no matter if the SSL is obtained through our company or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only can you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a matter of seconds and you will not need to do anything yourself. The only difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be identical. With this function you'll be able to protect the info of your customers and have a reliable Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other retailer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is very simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a few clicks you'll be able to select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and efforts as you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be secured and any client will feel certain that their information will be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate performance of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your website.
