SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information which users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact that 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 Shared Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our shared hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary details for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any info that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The one big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it that way as opposed to inputting your domain within the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other supplier with any one of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is quite simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with only a few clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site will be secure and any customer will feel confident that their info shall be protected as using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
