SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that clients submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but in addition to 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 run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud website 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

A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you buy it from our company or from a different vendor and regardless of the shared web hosting service which you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you'll find this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is chosen inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP, so once you buy and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the money that you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will function in the exact same way, so any data that the website visitors submit shall be encrypted. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain within an Internet browser, the Internet site shall not appear.

In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the instant you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to preserve the info of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the info in any way.
