If you would like to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the information is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

If you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you will not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of 2 additional clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any details which site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The only difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it in this way as opposed to entering your domain name inside the browser URL bar.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting

This way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we give you the chance to preserve the data of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL will encrypt the information in any way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that your website shall not accessible if you type the shared IP address rather than the domain/subdomain in the Internet browser address bar.
