If you'd like to protect the info which visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they will 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, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter if you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

A shared IP could be employed for any SSL certificate, no matter if you buy it from our company or from another dealer and regardless of the cloud web hosting service that you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you could also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is chosen within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP address, therefore once you obtain and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds that you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will do the job in the same exact way, so any data which the visitors submit shall be encrypted. The one difference is that if you input the shared IP address instead of your domain inside an Internet browser, the Internet site won't show up.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL acquired through us or through any other retailer with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is very basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a couple of clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be employed for this purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be secured and any customer will feel certain that their info shall be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate performance of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your site.
