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 using an SSL is to protect the info which site visitors submit on your website - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so forth. Any data they input in any box on the Internet site will be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment data will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. Typically, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be set up, which implies the overall cost for your online presence will be bigger. While this might not be an issue for a larger enterprise, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store which does not generate big earnings if additional money should be spent. That's the main 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 install an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting
solutions, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only several clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very 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 won't see your website. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically once it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a protected and reliable Internet site without having to spend more money for that.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other dealer with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans
. The setup is extremely easy and if you acquire the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with just several clicks you'll be able to pick the SSL to be installed automatically for the specific domain name
or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be employed for this particular purpose. This option will save you time and work considering that you won't need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be protected and any client will feel certain that their information will be protected considering that using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate functioning 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 site.
