If you would like to protect the info which visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

You shall be able to use this option with all our cloud hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you won't need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of 2 additional clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any info which website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it in this way as opposed to inputting your domain name inside the Internet browser URL bar.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

This way everything could be installed for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the info of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the info in any way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you enter the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain within the Internet browser address bar.
