SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information that customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and will make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since 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 Shared Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting
plans, you can very easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole 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 is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a risk-free and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
and the setup takes just a couple of mouse clicks inside the hosting Control Panel no matter if you buy an SSL from our enterprise or via a third-party supplier. There will not be any difference in terms of how the certificate operates or encrypts the data your website visitors submit, so your Internet site will be protected without spending the additional funds for a dedicated IP address. The one thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is highly unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your site in this way instead of inputting your domain name
. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought through our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP rather than a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
