Shared SSL IP
Find out what a shared SSL IP is and just how you can utilize one to instantly put in place an SSL certificate.
If you'd like to protect the information which visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any info exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card details, 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 site. The additional expense may matter if you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all our web hosting
plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any details that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The sole big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it this way as opposed to inputting your domain
within the browser URL bar.
