If you'd like to protect the information that visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encode any info exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter when you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting
packages, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a few mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the instant it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a protected and trustworthy Internet 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 purchased through us or through any other dealer with any one of our semi-dedicated servers
. The setup is incredibly simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with only a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain
or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be employed for this purpose. This option will save you time and work as you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website will be secured and any client will feel confident that their data shall be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your website.
