SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information that users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the capital, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all our cloud hosting
solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you will not have to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary data for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any details which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The sole big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it that way rather than typing your domain
in the browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated services
and the setup takes merely a couple of mouse clicks within the hosting Control Panel no matter if you order an SSL from our company or from a third-party provider. There will not be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encodes the information which your site visitors submit, so your website will be protected without spending the extra money for a dedicated IP. The one thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your website in this way rather than inputting your domain. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained via our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP as opposed to a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
