Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol that is used to encrypt the information exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to secure the info which customers submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run an Internet store, and so forth. Any information they enter in any box on the website will be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment details shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Normally, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be set up, which suggests the overall cost for your web presence will be higher. While this might not be a problem for a larger firm, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online shop which doesn't generate big income if additional money should be spent. This is the reason why we have taken advantage of an extension known as Server Name Indication (SNI) and we have made it possible to use a shared server IP address to install an SSL certificate.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference shall be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Given that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically once it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a secure and reliable website without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated hosting services and the setup takes merely 2 mouse clicks inside the hosting Control Panel regardless if you obtain an SSL via our enterprise or from a third-party supplier. There shall not be any difference in terms of how the certificate works or encrypts the information which your site visitors submit, so your Internet site shall be protected without having to spend any additional money for a dedicated IP. The sole thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your site in this way rather than entering your domain. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired via our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address as opposed to a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
