SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information which clients submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they enter their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every cloud website hosting plan which we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through our company or through a third-party business. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only could you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you won't have to do anything by hand. The sole difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be exactly the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the information of your customers and have a secure Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other vendor with any of our semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is extremely easy and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just several mouse clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secure and any customer will feel certain that their data will be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your website.
