SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information which customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your site and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required 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 better use for the capital, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting plans, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which 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 one difference will be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a protected and trustworthy website without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other vendor with any one of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is quite easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a couple of mouse clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and work since you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the funds you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secured and any client will feel certain that their information shall be protected given that using a shared IP address does not affect the proper performance of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your website.
