SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data 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 enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your website and shall make it more attractive to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you run 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 added expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting plans, you can quickly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that 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 somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. As our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the instant it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a risk-free and reliable website without having to spend extra money for that.

The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes merely two clicks within the hosting Control Panel no matter if you get an SSL via our company or via a third-party provider. There will not be any difference in terms of how the certificate functions or encrypts the info that your website visitors submit, so your site shall be secure without spending any additional money for a dedicated IP. The one thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's highly unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your internet site in this way as opposed to entering your domain. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained via our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP instead of a dedicated one, our system will set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
