SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data that customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and will make it more attractive to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 Shared Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every single shared hosting solution which we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you'll not have to do anything manually. The one difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything will be the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a secure site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

Any SSL certificate can be used with our specifically set up shared IPs, so if you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to use this option with only a few clicks when you install a certificate that you purchase through us or through some other dealer. For the SSLs that we offer you can also take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. This way the moment you approve the SSL, the shared IP address shall be set for the specific domain name or subdomain and the certificate will be installed with no action expected on your end, and so any data that visitors submit on your Internet site shall be secure. The SSL shall do the job in the exact same way regardless if it's set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the only thing that is different between the two setups is that inputting the shared IP as a URL inside a browser shall not open your Internet site.
