SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they input 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 site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that 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 Web Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our cloud web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any information that website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The one big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it in this way instead of typing your domain name inside the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You could use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other supplier with any one of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is extremely basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with just several clicks you'll be able to select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be employed for this purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the money you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be protected and any client will feel confident that their info shall be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
