If you want to protect the info which visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the actual content, thus if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter when you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting packages, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a secure and reliable Internet site without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other dealer with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is incredibly easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a few mouse clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and work given that you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be protected and any customer will feel assured that their info will be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper performance of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
