SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information which clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and shall make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, 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 Shared Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting solutions, you can quickly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a risk-free and trustworthy site without spending extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes merely two clicks inside the hosting CP irrespective if you purchase an SSL through our enterprise or through a third-party provider. There will not be any difference in the way the certificate operates or encrypts the info your website visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without having to spend the additional cash for a dedicated IP. The only thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your site in this way as opposed to typing your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired via our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP instead of a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
