Shared SSL IP
Learn what a shared SSL IP is and just how you can utilize one to quickly put in place an SSL certificate.
If you'd like to protect the info which visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter when you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all of our shared website hosting
plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you won't have to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP address 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 data for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any information that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The sole big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it in this way rather than entering your domain name
within the Internet browser URL bar.
