If you would like to protect the info which visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any information exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the info is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big income, 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 Shared Hosting

A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, no matter if you buy it from our company or from a different seller and regardless of the shared hosting package you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you shall discover this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is selected within the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP, thus once you acquire and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You can save the funds you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will work in the exact same way, so any info that the website visitors submit shall be encoded. The only difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain name within an Internet browser, the Internet site shall not display.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL acquired through us or through any other supplier with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is extremely easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with only a couple of clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and work given that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secure and any customer will feel confident that their data will be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate functioning of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
