SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info that clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the funds, you could avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all of our shared 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'll not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires only two additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any data which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it this way instead of typing your domain name in the web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other vendor with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is extremely easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with just several mouse clicks you'll be able to select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address which is configured to be employed for this purpose. This option shall save you time and work as you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secured and any customer will feel confident that their info shall be protected as using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate performance of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
