If you wish to protect the information which visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the data is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter if you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big revenue, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting solutions, you can very easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this type of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a risk-free and trustworthy website without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other vendor with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers. The setup is incredibly basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with only several mouse clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts since you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secured and any client will feel assured that their data shall be protected as using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
