SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information which users submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every single hosting solution we offer and regardless if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party business. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall do the installation 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 site won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this feature you can protect the information of your clients and have a reliable website without the added expense for a dedicated IP.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other dealer with any one of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is extremely simple and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely several mouse clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name or subdomain on the shared IP that is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and work since you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site shall be secure and any client will feel certain that their information will be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate functioning of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
