SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage 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 Shared Website Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all of our shared website hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires no more than two additional clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any info which website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The only difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it this way as opposed to entering your domain within the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other retailer with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is very simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a few clicks you could select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and work given that you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be secure and any client will feel certain that their data shall be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper performance of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
