SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy products and services online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every cloud web hosting package which we offer and no matter if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will install it for you within a matter of seconds and you will not need to do anything personally. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything will be the same. With this feature you could protect the information of your clients and have a risk-free website without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated packages and the setup takes only 2 clicks within the hosting CP no matter if you obtain an SSL through our company or through a third-party vendor. There shall not be any difference in terms of how the certificate works or encodes the info that your site visitors submit, so your site shall be protected without having to spend the additional money for a dedicated IP. The sole thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your site in this way rather than typing your domain name. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained through our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP address rather than a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
