If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter in case you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting solutions, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall 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 website. Due to the fact that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a risk-free and reliable Internet site without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other supplier with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is incredibly simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with only several mouse clicks you could select the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and efforts given that you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website will be secure and any customer will feel assured that their data will be protected given that using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your website.
