SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data which users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your site and will make it more attractive to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting
packages, you can quickly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Due to the fact that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically once it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and reliable Internet site without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated services
and the setup takes just two clicks within the hosting Control Panel no matter if you purchase an SSL through our enterprise or from a third-party provider. There shall not be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encrypts the information that your website visitors submit, so your Internet site will be protected without spending the extra cash for a dedicated IP address. The sole thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is highly unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your website in this way instead of keying in your domain
. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs purchased through our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
