SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info that clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional expense by making use of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every shared hosting solution we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a few seconds and you will not need to do anything manually. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a reliable Internet site without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL bought through us or through any other retailer with any one of our semi-dedicated packages. The setup is really simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with only several mouse clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be used for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts since you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the money you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site will be secured and any customer will feel confident that their information will be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate performance of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
