Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol used to encrypt the information exchanged between a server and its users. The practical application of using an SSL is to preserve the information that visitors submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so forth. Any data they type in in any box on the Internet site shall be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment data will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Normally, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be set up, which suggests the overall cost for your online presence shall be higher. While this may not be a problem for a larger company, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small web store that doesn't generate big income if additional money should be spent. That is the key reason why we've taken advantage of an extension known as Server Name Indication (SNI) and we have made it possible to use a shared server IP address to install an SSL certificate.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our website 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, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference shall be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and trustworthy website without having to spend extra money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL purchased through us or through any other retailer with any of our semi-dedicated plans. The setup is incredibly simple and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely 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 used for this purpose. This option will save you time and efforts as you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL through e-mail, not mentioning the funds you will save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website will be protected and any customer will feel confident that their information will be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate operation of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your site.
