SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info that users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your website and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our website hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. If you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires no more than two additional clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any data that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The one difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it this way rather than typing your domain within the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other supplier with any one of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is really basic and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just several clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and work as you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the money you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site shall be protected and any customer will feel confident that their data will be protected as using a shared IP address does not affect 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 site.
