If you want to protect the info that visitors submit on your 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 individual intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the data is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter if you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting packages, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only several clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other dealer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers. The setup is really simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with only several clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be employed for this purpose. This option will save you time and work considering that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site will be protected and any customer will feel confident that their data shall be protected as using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate performance of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
