If you want to protect the information which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any information exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter when you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every web hosting solution we offer and regardless if the SSL is purchased through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only could you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a few seconds and you will not have to do anything personally. The one difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything will be exactly the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the information of your clients and have a reliable Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other supplier with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. The setup is extremely simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just several mouse clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and efforts considering that you will not need 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 Internet site will be secured and any customer will feel confident that their data shall be protected as using a shared IP address does not affect the proper operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
