SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our shared website hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any data that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it this way instead of entering your domain inside the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL bought through us or through any other supplier with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is really simple and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with merely a few clicks you can pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you won't 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 Internet site shall be protected and any customer will feel certain that their data will be protected since using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate functioning of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your website.
