If you would like to protect the info that visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encode any info exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the data is protected. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter if you run a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Since our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That 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

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL acquired through us or through any other vendor with any of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is very simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with only a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this purpose. This option will save you time and work considering that you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the money you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site will be secure and any client will feel confident that their info shall be protected as using a shared IP address does not influence the proper functioning of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your website.
