SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting packages, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a protected and reliable website without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other dealer with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is incredibly simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a couple of clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and efforts since you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secured and any client will feel certain that their info shall be protected given that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
