If you wish to protect the information that visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any information exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the information is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

You shall be able to use this option with all our shared hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. When you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any info which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it in this way instead of typing your domain within the Internet browser URL bar.

In this way everything can be set up for you on the shared IP as soon as you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the opportunity to protect the information of your Internet site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encode the information in any way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that your website will not be accessible if you input the shared IP rather than the domain/subdomain in the browser address bar.
