SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data that customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the money, you could avoid the extra 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 packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. 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 purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires no more than 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any info that visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The one difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it this way rather than inputting your domain inside the web browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You could use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other dealer with any of our semi-dedicated hosting services. The setup is incredibly basic and if you get the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a few mouse clicks you'll be able to select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts as you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secure and any customer will feel assured that their information shall be protected given that using a shared IP address does not influence the proper operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
