If you want to protect the information that visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's 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 information, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the real content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter when you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big profit, so to save you the funds, 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 Web Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting packages, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. As our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically once it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy website without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other vendor with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. The setup is extremely simple and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely several clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and efforts since you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website will be secure and any customer will feel confident that their data shall be protected given that 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 Internet site.
