If you'd like to protect the info which visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the data is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically once it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and reliable Internet site without spending extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other vendor with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated services. The setup is extremely simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with only a couple of clicks you could select the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be used for this purpose. This option shall save you time and work considering that you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the funds you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site will be protected and any client will feel confident that their info shall be protected since using a shared IP address does not influence the proper functioning of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
