If you want to protect the information which visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they will 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, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the data is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter if you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the money, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a secure and reliable Internet site without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL acquired through us or through any other retailer with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. The setup is quite basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a few mouse clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work given that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website will be secured and any client will feel confident that their info will be protected since 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 can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
