Shared SSL IP
What is a shared SSL IP? How one can install an SSL certificate on this type of an IP?
If you would like to protect the info that visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the info is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate 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 Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all of our cloud web hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of two additional clicks after you fill the needed details for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any details that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The only big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it that way instead of entering your domain within the Internet browser URL bar.
