If you'd like to protect the data which visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter in case you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate 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 Web Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you can 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, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will 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 Internet site without spending more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL obtained through us or through any other retailer with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is incredibly simple and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a few clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and work as you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secured and any customer will feel certain that their info shall be protected since using a shared IP address does not affect the proper operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
