SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info which clients submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and will make it more attractive to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest 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 funds, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our web hosting packages, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Since our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the moment it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a secure and reliable website without having to spend extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other dealer with any one of our semi-dedicated service. The setup is incredibly basic and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely several mouse clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you'll 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 website shall be protected and any customer will feel confident that their info shall be protected since using a shared IP address does not influence the proper operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
