If you'd like to protect the info which visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some type or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting
packages, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you could 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 configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Since our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically as soon as it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without having to spend extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other vendor with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
. The setup is incredibly easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with merely several mouse clicks you can pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain
or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be employed for this purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be secured and any customer will feel assured that their data will be protected given that using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
