SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information which users submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your website and will make it more inviting to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight 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 as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our website hosting
plans, you can quickly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only several clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, so 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 could use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Due to the fact that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically as soon as it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a secure and trustworthy website without having to spend extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated servers
and the setup takes only two mouse clicks inside the hosting Control Panel irrespective if you buy an SSL via our business or from a third-party provider. There shall not be any difference in the way the certificate functions or encodes the info that your site visitors submit, so your Internet site will be protected without having to spend the additional cash for a dedicated IP address. The one thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your internet site in this way instead of inputting your domain
. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired through our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address instead of a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
