If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter if you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not 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 Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our shared hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you won't have to do anything after you purchase 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 set up by our system, so using this function requires only 2 additional clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any details that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The one difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it this way rather than typing your domain name within the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL bought through us or through any other supplier with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is very basic and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with simply a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and work since you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be secured and any client will feel certain that their info shall be protected given that using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate functioning of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your website.
