SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the data which users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given that 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 Cloud Website Hosting
Due to the fact 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 a few clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the moment it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and trustworthy website without having to spend extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL purchased through us or through any other retailer with any of our semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is incredibly simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with simply a couple of mouse clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and efforts considering that you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secured and any customer will feel certain that their information shall be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your site.
