SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data which clients submit on a website. If they type in 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 shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact that 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 Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary info for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any information which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The only big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it in this way rather than typing your domain within the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Any SSL certificate can be employed with our specially set up shared IPs, so if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to use this option with only a few clicks when you install a certificate that you acquire through us or through some other dealer. For the SSLs which we offer you can also take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. Thus the minute you approve the SSL, the shared IP address shall be set for the particular domain or subdomain and the certificate shall be installed with no action required on your end, so any data that visitors submit on your website shall be secure. The SSL will do the job in the same exact way no matter if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the only thing which is different between the two setups is that entering the shared IP address as a URL inside a browser will not open your Internet site.
