SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the data which users submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you could avoid the added 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 Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our shared web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any information which site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The only big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it in this way instead of typing your domain within the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes just 2 clicks in the hosting CP irrespective if you purchase an SSL from our company or via a third-party supplier. There shall not be any difference in terms of how the certificate operates or encrypts the data your website visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without having to spend the extra cash for a dedicated IP. The sole thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's highly unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your internet site in this way instead of typing your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained through our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address rather than a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
