SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info that customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our cloud web hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of 2 additional clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any data which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The one big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it in this way as opposed to entering your domain name inside the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You could use a shared IP address for an SSL bought through us or through any other supplier with any of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is quite simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a few clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website will be protected and any client will feel certain that their information shall be protected as using a shared IP address does not influence the proper functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
