Shared SSL IP
What is a shared SSL IP? How can you install an SSL certificate on this type of an IP?
SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data that customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and will make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every shared web hosting package that we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only can you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall set it up for you within a few seconds and you'll not need to do anything by hand. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything will be identical. With this feature you can protect the data of your clients and have a reliable site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.
