SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information that clients submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security 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's typically 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 better use for the money, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all our cloud website hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you won't need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of two additional clicks after you fill the required information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any information which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The sole difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it that way rather than inputting your domain within the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

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 service. The setup is incredibly basic and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a few clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts since you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the funds you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site will be protected and any client will feel confident that their info shall be protected as using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate performance of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
