If you wish to protect the data that visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you decide 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 choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any information that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The only big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it that way as opposed to typing your domain name in the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL acquired through us or through any other retailer with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. The setup is very simple and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with simply a couple of mouse clicks you can pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be used for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the funds you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secure and any customer will feel certain that their data will be protected given that using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your site.
