Shared SSL IP
Find out what a shared SSL IP is and the way you could use one to promptly put in place an SSL certificate.
If you would like to protect the info which visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the real content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee 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 expense may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big profit, so to save you the money, 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 could be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you purchase it from us or from some other seller and regardless of the cloud hosting service
you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL from us, you'll find this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer. If the latter is picked in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you via 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 could save the funds that you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall function in the same exact way, so any information that the visitors submit shall be encrypted. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain
within a browser, the Internet site won't show up.
