SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

Given that we offer SSL certificates with our web hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order process, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to 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, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically once it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a secure and reliable site without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes merely 2 clicks inside the hosting CP no matter if you get an SSL from our enterprise or through a third-party provider. There shall not be any difference in terms of how the certificate functions or encodes the info that your site visitors submit, so your Internet site will be secure without spending any additional money for a dedicated IP. The one thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your internet site in this way instead of entering your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased through our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address rather than a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
