SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which customers submit on a website. 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 shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your website and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you can avoid the added expense by making use 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

Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus 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 such a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Given that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a secure and reliable website without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other retailer with any one of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is really basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with merely several 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 that's configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be secure and any client will feel certain that their information shall be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
