SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services as 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 Web Hosting

You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every cloud web hosting solution that we offer and irrespective if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a matter of seconds and you will not have to do anything manually. The sole difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site won't appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be the same. With this function you could protect the info of your customers and have a secure site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other dealer with any of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is extremely simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with just several clicks you could select the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secure and any customer will feel assured that their data will be protected as using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
