SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data that customers submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they input their credit card info, the data shall 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 raise the safety of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all our cloud hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you order 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 function requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any details that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The sole big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it in this way rather than typing your domain name in the Internet browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated plans and the setup takes just two clicks inside the hosting Control Panel regardless if you order an SSL via our enterprise or from a third-party supplier. There will not be any difference in terms of how the certificate operates or encrypts the info your website visitors submit, so your site will be protected without having to spend the additional money for a dedicated IP. The one thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your Internet site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's extremely unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your internet site in this way instead of inputting your domain name. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought through our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP address instead of a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
