Shared SSL IP
Learn how you could install an SSL certificate not having a dedicated IP through our Shared SSL IPs.
SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting 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 site and shall make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each shared web hosting
package we offer and regardless if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall set it up for you within a few seconds and you will not have to do anything yourself. The only difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be identical. With this function you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a secure Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
