SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and shall make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 Cloud Web Hosting
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every single cloud web hosting
package that we offer and irrespective if the SSL is obtained through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will install it for you within a few seconds and you won't have to do anything by hand. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be the same. With this function you can protect the information of your clients and have a reliable Internet site without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
and the setup takes merely two clicks in the hosting Control Panel regardless if you obtain an SSL from our company or via a third-party supplier. There will not be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encrypts the info your site visitors submit, so your site shall be protected without spending any additional cash for a dedicated IP. The one thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is highly unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your website in this way rather than inputting your domain name
. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased via our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address instead of a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
