If you would 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's a protocol used to encrypt any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the information is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big revenue, 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 Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our cloud web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you won't have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires only two additional clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any information that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The only difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it in this way as opposed to entering your domain name within the browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other retailer with any of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is incredibly simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts considering that you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the funds you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be protected and any client will feel confident that their data will be protected as using a shared IP address does not influence the proper functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
