SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every web hosting solution we offer and regardless if the SSL is acquired through our company or through a third-party business. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only will you be able to 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 few seconds and you won't have to do anything personally. The one difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this feature you could protect the information of your clients and have a reliable website without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other dealer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service. The setup is quite easy and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with merely several clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be employed for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the money you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secured and any client will feel assured that their info shall be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper functioning of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
