If you want to protect the information that visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, thus if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate a big profit, so to save you the funds, 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 Web Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your website. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically as soon as it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a secure and reliable Internet site without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL bought through us or through any other retailer with any one of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is quite easy and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a couple of clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be used for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts as you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the funds you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be secured and any client will feel confident that their info will be protected since using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate performance of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
