If you wish to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the actual content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big revenue, 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 Cloud Web Hosting

Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. As our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a risk-free and reliable Internet site without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other dealer with any of our semi-dedicated service. The setup is extremely simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a few clicks you can pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and work since you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the money you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site will be secure and any customer will feel confident that their data will be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate functioning of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
