Shared SSL IP
Discover how you could install an SSL certificate without the need of a dedicated IP through our Shared SSL IPs.
If you want to protect the info which visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they shall 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, therefore if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and goods online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the data is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter in case you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting
A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you acquire it from our company or from a different vendor and regardless of the website hosting service
that you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you'll come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is picked in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specially configured server shared IP, so once you obtain and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the money you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will work in the exact same way, so any information that the visitors submit will be encrypted. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain
inside a browser, the website shall not display.
