If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter if you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big profit, 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 Cloud Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting
solutions, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Due to the fact that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a risk-free and trustworthy site without having to spend extra money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other vendor with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages
. The setup is incredibly simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you could also benefit from our SSL wizard where with only several clicks you can pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name
or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be used for this purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts as you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website will be protected and any customer will feel confident that their information will be protected as using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate performance of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
