Shared SSL IP
Find what a shared SSL IP is and the way you could use one to promptly set up an SSL certificate.
If you would like to protect the data that visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encrypt any info exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, 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, and so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the information is secure. Normally 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 if you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big profit, so to save you the funds, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
A shared IP could be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you get it from us or from another vendor and regardless of the web hosting service
you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you will discover this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP address, thus once you order and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the cash that you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall work in the same exact way, so any information which the website visitors submit shall be encrypted. The sole difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain within a browser, the Internet site shall not show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
Any SSL certificate could be used with our specifically set up shared IPs, thus if you have a semi-dedicated server
account, you can use this option with just several mouse clicks when you install a certificate you acquire through us or through another retailer. For the SSLs we offer you could also take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. This way the moment you approve the SSL, the shared IP address will be set for the specific domain or subdomain and the certificate will be installed without any action required on your end, so any info that website visitors submit on your site shall be protected. The SSL shall function in the same exact way irrespective if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the 1 thing that is different between the two setups is that entering the shared IP address as a URL inside an Internet browser will not open your Internet site.
