SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data that clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore 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 appealing to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional expense by making use of our services given that 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 Hosting

A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, no matter if you purchase it from our company or from a different retailer and regardless of the shared hosting plan that you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you shall find this option on the certificate order page in your hosting Control Panel where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP, thus once you obtain and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the cash that you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall do the job in the same exact way, so any info that the site visitors submit shall be encrypted. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain name in a web browser, the Internet site shall not show up.

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 vendor with any of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is really simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a few clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts since you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be protected and any customer will feel assured that their data will be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
