SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data which users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they input their credit card info, the data will 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 increase the safety of your website and will make it more inviting to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you could avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services given that 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 Website Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a few clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. As our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the instant it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a secure and reliable website without spending extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated plans and the setup takes just 2 clicks within the hosting CP irrespective if you obtain an SSL via our enterprise or via a third-party vendor. There won't be any difference in terms of how the certificate works or encodes the data that your visitors submit, so your site will be protected without having to spend the additional cash for a dedicated IP address. The one thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's quite unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your internet site in this way as opposed to entering your domain name. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained via our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP as opposed to a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
