Shared SSL IP
Learn what a shared SSL IP is and the way you can use one to easily set up an SSL certificate.
If you would like to protect the info that visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall 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 site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not 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 Cloud Hosting
A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you purchase it from us or from a different vendor and regardless of the cloud hosting service
that you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is picked inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you using the specially configured server shared IP address, so once you obtain and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You can save the funds that you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall do the job in the exact same way, so any information which the website visitors submit shall be encoded. The only difference is that if you input the shared IP instead of your domain
in a browser, the Internet site will not display.
