SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your site and shall make it more inviting to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. If you manage 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 funds, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services since our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and trustworthy site without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated packages and the setup takes only a couple of mouse clicks in the hosting CP regardless if you buy an SSL from our enterprise or via a third-party vendor. There won't be any difference with regards to how the certificate works or encrypts the information your visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without having to spend the extra cash for a dedicated IP. The only thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your website in this way as opposed to inputting your domain name. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased via our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address as opposed to a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
