SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info that users submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting solutions, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated plans and the setup takes merely 2 mouse clicks inside the hosting Control Panel regardless if you order an SSL from our company or through a third-party provider. There shall not be any difference with regards to how the certificate works or encodes the information your website visitors submit, so your site shall be protected without having to spend the additional money for a dedicated IP address. The one thing that'll 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 website in this way as opposed to inputting your domain name. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought via our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP rather than a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
