SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info which users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they type in their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. In case you run a small 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 money, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting packages, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, 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 can use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a risk-free and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
Any SSL certificate can be used with our specifically configured shared IPs, so if you have a semi-dedicated server account, you could use this option with merely a couple of clicks when you install a certificate you obtain through us or through some other vendor. For the SSLs that we offer you are also able to take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. That way the moment you approve the SSL, the shared IP address shall be set for the specific domain name or subdomain and the certificate shall be installed without any action required on your end, and thus any information that site visitors submit on your Internet site shall be protected. The SSL shall work in the exact same way irrespective if it's set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the one thing that is different between the two setups is that entering the shared IP as a URL within a browser shall not open your Internet site.
