If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, therefore if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and goods online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter when you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting solutions, you can quickly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you could 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, which has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. As our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a protected and reliable Internet site without spending extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated service and the setup takes merely 2 mouse clicks in the hosting Control Panel no matter if you purchase an SSL from our business or via a third-party supplier. There will not be any difference in the way the certificate operates or encodes the info which your website visitors submit, so your website will be secure without spending the additional money for a dedicated IP. The only thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is highly unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your internet site in this way instead of keying in your domain. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained via our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address instead of a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
