SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information which users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your site and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud web 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

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. Given that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes only two mouse clicks within the hosting CP irrespective if you buy an SSL through our enterprise or from a third-party provider. There won't be any difference in terms of how the certificate functions or encodes the data that your visitors submit, so your Internet site will be secure without spending any additional cash for a dedicated IP address. The sole thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your website in this way as opposed to inputting your domain name. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased via our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
