Shared SSL IP
Learn what a shared SSL IP is and exactly how you can use one to easily set up an SSL certificate.
SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info that customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and shall make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a risk-free and reliable site without spending more money for that.
