If you would like to protect the data that visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, thus if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter when you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the money, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our website hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Since our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a secure and reliable Internet site without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Any SSL certificate could be used with our specifically configured shared IPs, thus if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can use this option with merely several mouse clicks when you install a certificate which you obtain through us or through any other dealer. For the SSLs which we offer you are also able to take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. This way as soon as you approve the SSL, the shared IP address shall be set for the given domain or subdomain and the certificate will be installed with no action needed on your end, and thus any information that visitors submit on your website will be secure. The SSL shall function in the exact same way no matter if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the only thing that is different between the two setups is that typing the shared IP address as a URL inside an Internet browser won't open your Internet site.
