If you want to protect the data that visitors submit on your Internet site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and goods online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the information is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big income, so to save you the money, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all of our hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the necessary details for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any details that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The only big difference from using 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 in this way instead of typing your domain within the web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other vendor with any one of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is incredibly basic and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a couple of mouse clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and efforts given that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be secure and any client will feel certain that their information shall be protected as using a shared IP address does not influence the proper performance of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
