SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and will make it more attractive to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra 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 Cloud Website Hosting

A shared IP could be employed for any SSL certificate, no matter if you get it from us or from some other vendor and regardless of the cloud website hosting service that you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you'll come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is picked within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specially configured server shared IP, thus once you buy and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the money you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will do the job in the exact same way, so any data that the website visitors submit shall be encrypted. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain within an Internet browser, the website shall not display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other retailer with any of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is extremely easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with only several clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be protected and any client will feel certain that their info shall be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper performance of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
