SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and will 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, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all of our web 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'll not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires only 2 additional clicks after you fill the necessary information for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any information that visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it that way rather than typing your domain inside the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other retailer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is quite simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with merely a few clicks you could select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts as you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be secure and any customer will feel assured that their information will be protected since using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate performance of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
