SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and will make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited 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 making use of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all of our hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. If you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you will not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any data which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it that way rather than inputting your domain name within the browser URL bar.

You can use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other vendor with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. The setup is incredibly basic and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just a few mouse clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option will 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 money you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secure and any client will feel assured that their information shall be protected given that using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
