Shared SSL IP
Learn what a shared SSL IP is and in what ways you could use one to easily put in place an SSL certificate.
If you'd like to protect the info which visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encode any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the actual content, thus if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all of our shared web hosting
solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you decide to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you will not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the needed data for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any details which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The one difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it in this way as opposed to entering your domain
within the browser URL bar.
