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

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting

Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a protected and reliable website without spending more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use a shared IP address for an SSL bought through us or through any other vendor with any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. The setup is very simple and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a couple of mouse clicks you could choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this purpose. This option will save you time and efforts as you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL through email, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your site shall be protected and any customer will feel assured that their information shall be protected since using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
