SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data which customers submit on a website. 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 info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you could avoid the added expense by making use 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 Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every shared web hosting plan we offer and irrespective if the SSL is obtained through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a few seconds and you'll not need to do anything by hand. The only difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your Internet site won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything will be identical. With this function you'll be able to protect the information of your clients and have a secure Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other supplier with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is really simple and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with only a couple of clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and work as you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be protected and any customer will feel assured that their info shall be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate operation 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 website.
