SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and will make it more attractive to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting packages, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this sort 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 very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a secure and reliable Internet site without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Any SSL certificate could be used with our specifically configured shared IPs, thus if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you could use this option with only several clicks when you install a certificate which you obtain through us or through any other vendor. For the SSLs we offer you can also take advantage of an extra function and have our system set everything up for you. In this way the moment you approve the SSL, the shared IP address will be set for the particular domain name or subdomain and the certificate shall be installed without any action expected on your end, and so any information that visitors submit on your website will be protected. The SSL shall do the job in the same exact way no matter if it's set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the only thing that's different between the two setups is that inputting the shared IP as a URL inside an Internet browser will not open your website.
