SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info that customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our cloud hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you won't 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 no more than 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed data for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any data that site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured 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 extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it that way rather than typing your domain inside the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL acquired through us or through any other dealer with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting service. The setup is really basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just a couple of clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts since you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website will be secured and any customer will feel assured that their information will be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your website.
