If you want to protect the info that visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter in case you run a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our hosting packages, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a protected and trustworthy website without having to spend extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You could use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other supplier with any of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is quite simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just a couple of mouse clicks you can pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work since you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site shall be protected and any customer will feel confident that their data shall be protected as using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate performance of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your website.
