If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they will 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 info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the data is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter if you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the cash, 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 solutions, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Due to the fact that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the instant it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a protected and trustworthy site without spending extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other dealer with any of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is extremely simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a few mouse clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be employed for this purpose. This option will save you time and work since you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site will be secured and any customer will feel assured that their info will be protected since using a shared IP address does not affect 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.
