If you want to protect the information which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encode any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the info is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter when you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our website hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you won't need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow 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 a maximum of 2 additional clicks after you fill the needed data for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any information which website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The sole difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it this way as opposed to typing your domain name inside the Internet 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 vendor with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. The setup is incredibly easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with only several mouse clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and efforts considering that you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the funds you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secured and any customer will feel assured that their data will be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't influence the proper functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
