SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they enter their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your site and will make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only several clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the moment it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a protected and reliable Internet site without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages and the setup takes just 2 clicks within the hosting CP no matter if you buy an SSL from our enterprise or via a third-party provider. There won't be any difference with regards to how the certificate functions or encrypts the info that your site visitors submit, so your website will be protected without spending any additional money for a dedicated IP address. The one thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's highly unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your internet site in this way instead of keying in your domain name. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired via our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
