Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol employed to encode the data exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to preserve the information which visitors submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run an online store, and so on. Any data they enter in any box on the Internet site will be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment details will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Typically, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be set up, which means the overall cost for your web presence will be higher. While this may not be a problem for a larger company, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online shop that does not generate big income if additional money should be spent. That's the key reason why we've taken advantage of an extension called 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 Website Hosting

Since we offer SSL certificates with our website hosting solutions, you can quickly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically 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'll not see your website. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically once it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a secure and reliable site without having to spend more money for that.

Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You could use a shared IP for an SSL acquired through us or through any other supplier with any of our semi-dedicated hosting. The setup is very easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you can also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with just a couple of clicks you'll be able to choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the selected domain name or subdomain on the shared IP address that's configured to be employed for this specific purpose. This option will save you time and work since you will not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your website shall be protected and any client will feel assured that their information will be protected as using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate operation of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address can't be used as a URL to access your website.
