If you would like to protect the information that visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so 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 an assurance that the information is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter in case you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big income, so to save you the money, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our shared hosting plans 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'll not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any information which website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it in this way as opposed to inputting your domain name inside the world-wide web browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other supplier with any of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is extremely basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with just a few clicks you could pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this purpose. This option shall save you time and work as you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be secure and any client will feel confident that their info shall be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your website.
