If you would like to protect the info that visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the info is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big income, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting packages, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so 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 could 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 and the sole difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically once it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a risk-free and reliable Internet site without having to spend extra 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 supplier with any one of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is really simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a few clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work as you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the funds you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website will be secure and any customer will feel certain that their info shall be protected since using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your website.
