SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info which users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they type in 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 safety of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all of our cloud hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the needed data for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any info which website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The only big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it this way instead of entering your domain inside the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Any SSL certificate could be used with our specially set up shared IPs, thus if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you could use this option with only a few clicks when you install a certificate that you obtain through us or through some other dealer. For the SSLs which we offer you are also able to take advantage of an additional function and have our system set everything up for you. This way once you approve the SSL, the shared IP shall be set for the particular domain or subdomain and the certificate shall be installed without any action needed on your end, and so any info that website visitors submit on your Internet site will be secure. The SSL shall do the job in the exact same way no matter if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the only thing which is different between the two setups is that typing the shared IP address as a URL in a browser shall not open your site.
