Shared SSL IP
Discover what a shared SSL IP is and the way you could use one to promptly set up an SSL certificate.
If you would like to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate a big revenue, 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 Website Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting
packages, you can quickly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a secure and reliable site without having to spend more money for that.
