SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the data which clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have 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 money, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services given 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 of our web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you will not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any details which site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The only difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it this way instead of entering your domain in the browser URL bar.

You could use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other vendor with any of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is extremely simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with simply a few clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and work as you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the funds you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be protected and any client will feel assured that their information shall be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your site.
