SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and will make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our shared website hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The adequate functioning of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any information which site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The sole difference from employing 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 name inside the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other dealer with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. The setup is incredibly easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just several clicks you could select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secure and any customer will feel confident that their information shall be protected since using a shared IP address does not affect the proper 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.
