SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the data that clients submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they type in their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and will make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services given that 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 Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all of our hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you will not have 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 set up by our system, so using this function requires only two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any data that 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:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it that way instead of typing your domain within the web browser URL bar.

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other vendor with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is extremely easy and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a few mouse clicks you'll be able to select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and efforts since you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be protected and any client will feel certain that their data will be protected as using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate functioning of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your website.
