SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data which clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter 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 won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud website 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

Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting plans, you can quickly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the moment it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a risk-free and reliable website without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You could use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other vendor with any one of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is really easy and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with only a couple of mouse clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and efforts considering that you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the money you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website will be secured and any customer will feel assured that their information will be protected since using a shared IP address does not affect the proper performance 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.
