If you'd like to protect the data which visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the data is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all our cloud hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you will not need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of two additional clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any info which website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it in this way rather than typing your domain inside the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL bought through us or through any other dealer with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is quite easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a few clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you will 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 secured and any customer will feel assured that their information shall be protected as using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate functioning of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
