SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data which users submit on a website. If they type in 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 will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your site and will make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you could 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 Shared Web Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting
packages, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so 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 such a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. As our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically as soon as it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a protected and trustworthy site without having to spend more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting
and the setup takes merely 2 mouse clicks in the hosting Control Panel irrespective if you buy an SSL via our business or through a third-party supplier. There shall not be any difference in the way the certificate works or encodes the data which your website visitors submit, so your Internet site shall be protected without having to spend any additional funds for a dedicated IP address. The only thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your site in this way as opposed to entering your domain
. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought through our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP address as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
