Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol employed to encrypt the data exchanged between a server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to protect the information which customers submit on your website - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so forth. Any information they type in in any box on the website shall be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment details shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Normally, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be installed, which means the overall cost for your web presence shall be bigger. While this might not exactly be a problem for a larger business, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online shop that doesn't generate big earnings if additional money should be spent. That is the key reason why we have taken advantage of an extension known as Server Name Indication (SNI) and we've made it possible to use a shared server IP address to set up an SSL certificate.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting

Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting solutions, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a few mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Due to the fact that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically as soon as it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a risk-free and reliable Internet site without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other dealer with any one of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is quite easy and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply several clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts given that you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL through e mail, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website shall be secured and any client will feel certain that their information shall be protected given that using a shared IP address doesn't influence the adequate operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
