SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info which customers submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your site and will make it more attractive to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the capital, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting

A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you buy it from our company or from another seller and regardless of the shared website hosting package you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you'll come across this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is selected inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP address, thus once you buy and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You can save the funds that you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall function in the same exact way, so any data the website visitors submit shall be encoded. The only difference is that if you input the shared IP address instead of your domain name in a browser, the website will not appear.
