SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information which users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this type of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you will 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 spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other vendor with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. The setup is very basic 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 particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the funds you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site shall be protected and any customer will feel certain that their information shall be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper 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 Internet site.
