Shared SSL IP
Discover how you could install an SSL certificate not having a dedicated IP by using our Shared SSL IPs.
If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your Internet site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the information is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our web hosting
solutions, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Due to the fact that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a risk-free and trustworthy website without spending extra cash for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
Any SSL certificate could be used with our specifically set up shared IPs, thus if you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you can use this option with simply a couple of clicks when you install a certificate you purchase through us or through some other retailer. For the SSLs that we offer you can also take advantage of an extra function and have our system set everything up for you. That way the minute you approve the SSL, the shared IP address will be set for the given domain or subdomain and the certificate will be installed without any action required on your end, and thus any information that visitors submit on your Internet site shall be secure. The SSL shall function in the same exact way no matter if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the 1 thing that's different between the two setups is that inputting the shared IP address as a URL in a web browser will not open your site.
