SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information that clients submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your website and shall make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by taking advantage 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 Shared Website Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. As our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and reliable site without spending more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes only two clicks inside the hosting Control Panel regardless if you purchase an SSL through our business or through a third-party provider. There shall not be any difference with regards to how the certificate works or encrypts the information which your website visitors submit, so your Internet site shall be secure without spending the additional funds for a dedicated IP. The only thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's highly unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your internet site in this way as opposed to keying in your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought through our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address rather than a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
