SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that users 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 type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that 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 Web Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all our web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires only two additional clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any details which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it that way rather than typing your domain name in the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes just 2 clicks inside the hosting CP no matter if you get an SSL via our business or from a third-party provider. There shall not be any difference in the way the certificate operates or encodes the data which your visitors submit, so your Internet site will be protected without spending the extra money for a dedicated IP. The sole thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's quite unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your site in this way as opposed to keying in your domain name. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased through our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP rather than a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
