Shared SSL IP
Learn how you will be able to install an SSL certificate not having a dedicated IP thanks to our Shared SSL IPs.
If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encrypt any information exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the info is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter if you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every cloud hosting
plan that we offer and no matter if the SSL is acquired through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also choose our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will install it for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not need to do anything manually. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you could protect the information of your customers and have a secure Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.
