If you wish to protect the information that visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any info exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, therefore if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all our cloud web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you won't need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any details that visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it that way rather than entering your domain name in the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You could use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other vendor with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. The setup is really basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely several mouse clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and work since you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secure and any client will feel confident that their data will be protected as using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper performance 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 website.
