SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information that 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 input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your site and will make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our shared web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you won't have to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any information which website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it this way instead of inputting your domain name inside the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated plans and the setup takes just a couple of mouse clicks within the hosting CP no matter if you get an SSL from our business or from a third-party provider. There won't be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encrypts the information that your visitors submit, so your Internet site shall be secure without spending the extra funds for a dedicated IP. The only thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your website in this way as opposed to typing your domain name. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained via our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP as opposed to a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
