Shared SSL IP
Find out how you can install an SSL certificate devoid of a dedicated IP through our Shared SSL IPs.
If you'd like to protect the data that visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a site 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 existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, thus if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the info is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you run a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big profit, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all our website hosting
plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional clicks after you fill the necessary info for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any information which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The only big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it this way instead of inputting your domain name
within the browser URL bar.
