SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the funds, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services as our cloud website 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 shall be able to use this option with all our web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The adequate functioning of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any information that visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it in this way as opposed to entering your domain within the Internet browser URL bar.

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 one of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is extremely simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with only a couple of mouse 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 purpose. This option will save you time and efforts as 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 protected and any customer will feel certain that their data shall be protected given that using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate functioning of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
