SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information that users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they enter their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your website and shall make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services since 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 Website Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a few mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically once it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a protected and trustworthy site without spending more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other retailer with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. The setup is extremely simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also benefit from our SSL wizard where with only several clicks you can select the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and work given that you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site will be secure and any client will feel assured that their data will be protected since using a shared IP address does not influence the proper operation 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 website.
