SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by taking advantage 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 Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single cloud hosting solution we offer and regardless if the SSL is acquired through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also select our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a few seconds and you will not need to do anything personally. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything will be exactly the same. With this feature you could protect the info of your clients and have a risk-free Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL acquired through us or through any other vendor with any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. The setup is very easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a few clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be employed for this purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website will be protected and any client will feel certain that their information shall be protected given that using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate performance 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.
