SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info which customers submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the money, you can avoid the additional expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single shared website hosting plan we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you'll not need to do anything personally. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the information of your clients and have a risk-free website without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You could use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other retailer with any of our semi-dedicated hosting packages. The setup is incredibly basic and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with merely a few mouse clicks you could select the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be used for this purpose. This option will save you time and work given that you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secured and any customer will feel certain that their info will be protected as using a shared IP address does not affect the proper operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
