SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes 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 products and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the additional 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 Shared Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Due to the fact that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and reliable website without spending more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
You could use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other dealer with any of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is really easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just several mouse clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts since you'll not 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 secured and any client will feel certain that their info will be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper functioning of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
