If you'd like to protect the information which visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big revenue, 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 Shared Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all our shared hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you won't need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The adequate functioning of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any details which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The sole difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it this way instead of entering your domain within the web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other dealer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. 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 merely a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to select the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be used for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secured and any customer will feel certain that their data will be protected given that using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate performance of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
