If you want to protect the info that visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the authentic content, thus if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the data is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter if you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big income, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting solutions, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Given 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. This way, you could have a secure and reliable Internet site without spending more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
You could use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other retailer with any one of our semi-dedicated service. The setup is quite simple and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply several clicks you can pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP which is configured to be used for this purpose. This option will save you time and work since you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be protected and any client will feel certain that their data shall be protected given that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper performance of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
