SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more 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 limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all of our shared hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the required information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any info which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The sole difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it that way instead of entering your domain inside the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes just two mouse clicks in the hosting CP regardless if you purchase an SSL via our company or from a third-party vendor. There shall not be any difference in the way the certificate operates or encodes the information that your website visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without spending any additional funds for a dedicated IP. The sole thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your site in this way as opposed to keying in your domain. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired via our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
