SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by making use of our services as 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 Web Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all of our web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any data that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The sole big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it that way as opposed to entering your domain name within the Internet browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You could 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 incredibly basic and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a couple of mouse clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and efforts as you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be secure and any customer will feel confident that their info shall be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate performance of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
