If you want to protect the data that visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter in case you run a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting
solutions, you can quickly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference shall be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. Given that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a secure and reliable site without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans
and the setup takes only 2 mouse clicks within the hosting Control Panel regardless if you get an SSL through our enterprise or through a third-party supplier. There will not be any difference in the way the certificate functions or encodes the data your visitors submit, so your Internet site will be secure without having to spend the additional cash for a dedicated IP address. The only thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's highly unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your website in this way as opposed to inputting your domain name
. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained through our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address as opposed to a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
