SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires no more than 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any information which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The only difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it this way as opposed to inputting your domain name within the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Any SSL certificate can be employed with our specifically set up shared IPs, thus if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can use this option with simply a couple of mouse clicks when you install a certificate which you acquire through us or through another retailer. For the SSLs we offer you can also take advantage of an additional function and have our system set everything up for you. In this way as soon as you approve the SSL, the shared IP address will be set for the given domain name or subdomain and the certificate will be installed without any action needed on your end, so any data that site visitors submit on your website shall be secure. The SSL will perform in the same exact way no matter if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the only thing which is different between the two setups is that inputting the shared IP address as a URL inside a web browser will not open your Internet site.
