SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our web hosting
plans, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. Due to the fact that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and trustworthy website without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated plans
and the setup takes just a couple of mouse clicks within the hosting Control Panel irrespective if you purchase an SSL via our business or via a third-party vendor. There will not be any difference in the way the certificate works or encodes the information that your site visitors submit, so your site will be protected without having to spend the additional cash for a dedicated IP. The sole thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your internet site in this way rather than inputting your domain name
. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired through our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address instead of a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
