SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info that users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your website and shall make it more inviting to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage 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 Website Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our cloud website hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. If you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any data that site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it in this way as opposed to inputting your domain within the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL bought through us or through any other vendor with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services. The setup is really simple and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with just several mouse clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this purpose. This option will save you time and efforts considering that you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be secured and any customer will feel assured that their info shall be protected as using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
