Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol used to encode the info exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to protect the data that clients submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so forth. Any content they type in in any box on the site shall be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment information will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Usually, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be set up, meaning that the overall cost for your web presence will be bigger. While this might not exactly be a problem for a larger business, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that does not generate big profits if additional money should be spent. This is the key reason why we have taken advantage of an extension referred to as Server Name Indication (SNI) and we have made it possible to use a shared server IP address to set up an SSL certificate.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Given that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a secure and reliable website without spending extra cash for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL obtained through us or through any other dealer with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is incredibly easy and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with merely a few mouse clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and work given that you will not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the money you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be protected and any client will feel certain that their data will be protected since using a shared IP address doesn't affect the adequate operation of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
