SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info which users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your site and will make it more appealing to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given that 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 Cloud Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each cloud hosting package we offer and no matter if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only could you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also select our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall handle the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you will not have to do anything yourself. The one difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be exactly the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a secure Internet site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL bought through us or through any other supplier with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is incredibly simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be employed for this purpose. This option will save you time and efforts as you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secure and any client will feel certain that their data will be protected given that using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
