If you want to protect the data which visitors submit on your Internet site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big revenue, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can use a shared IP for an SSL bought through us or through any other retailer with any of our semi-dedicated servers. The setup is very easy and if you get the certificate from our company, you could also take full advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply a couple of mouse clicks you can choose the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP that's configured to be used for this specific purpose. This option shall save you time and efforts as you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the cash you'll save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site will be secured and any customer will feel confident that their information shall be protected considering that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper performance of the certificate and the only difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
