If you wish to protect the data that visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real content, thus if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and goods online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the info is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate a big income, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our website hosting packages, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option will be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it's issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a risk-free and trustworthy Internet site without spending more money 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 one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers. The setup is incredibly easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just a few mouse clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts as you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secured and any client will feel assured that their information will be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your website.
