SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and will make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services as 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 Shared Hosting

A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you purchase it from us or from a different dealer and regardless of the shared hosting package that you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you will find this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is picked within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP address, thus once you buy and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You can save the money you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall work in the same exact way, so any info which the visitors submit will be encoded. The sole difference is that if you enter the shared IP instead of your domain name within a web browser, the website shall not appear.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other dealer with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is very easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a couple of clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you will not need 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 Internet site will be secure and any customer will feel certain that their info will be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate operation 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 website.
