SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info that users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting solutions, you can quickly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a few clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other dealer with any of our semi-dedicated services. The setup is very easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with only several clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and efforts considering that you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the funds you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be protected and any client will feel certain that their info will be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
