If you wish to protect the information that visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any info exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter in case you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our shared hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary info for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any information that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it in this way as opposed to typing your domain inside the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other supplier with any of our semi-dedicated service. The setup is extremely simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply several mouse 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 employed for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and efforts given that you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secure and any customer will feel confident that their data will be protected since using a shared IP address does not influence the proper operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
