Shared SSL IP
Discover how you could install an SSL certificate devoid of a dedicated IP thanks to our Shared SSL IPs.
If you wish to protect the data which visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this 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 data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real 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 a guarantee that the data is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter when you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the money, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all our shared web hosting
solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary data for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any information that site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The sole difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it that way rather than inputting your domain
in the Internet browser URL bar.
