If you wish to protect the information that visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, therefore if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you acquire it from our company or from some other dealer and regardless of the cloud hosting service you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you'll find this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is picked within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP, therefore once you order and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You can save the funds that you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will function in the exact same way, so any information which the visitors submit will be encoded. The sole difference is that if you input the shared IP address instead of your domain inside a web browser, the site shall not show up.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other dealer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service. The setup is really simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with only a few clicks you could select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts considering that you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site will be secure and any client will feel assured that their info will be protected as using a shared IP address does not affect the proper 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 Internet site.
