SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your site and will make it more inviting to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services since 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
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Given that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a protected and reliable website without having to spend extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other dealer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. The setup is quite easy and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a couple of clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site will be protected and any customer will feel confident that their data shall be protected given that using a shared IP address does not influence the proper operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
