SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the 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 Internet site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the money, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our cloud hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only two additional clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any details which website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The only big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it that way as opposed to typing your domain name within the 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 supplier with any of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is very easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with only a few clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and efforts since you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site will be protected and any customer will feel certain that their info will be protected as using a shared IP address does not influence 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 website.
