Shared SSL IP
Find out how you'll be able to install an SSL certificate without the need of a dedicated IP through our Shared SSL IPs.
SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information which users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and shall make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
You could use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other vendor with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service. The setup is very basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and work since you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website will be secure and any customer will feel certain that their information shall be protected as using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper functioning 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.
