SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data that customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services given 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 Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our cloud hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any details which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The sole big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it in this way as opposed to typing your domain inside the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other retailer with any one of our semi-dedicated services. The setup is extremely basic and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with only a couple of clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts as you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be secure and any client will feel confident that their data shall be protected since using a shared IP address does not affect the proper operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
