Shared SSL IP
Find what a shared SSL IP is and in what way you can use one to promptly put in place an SSL certificate.
Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol employed to encrypt the information exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to secure the information which clients submit on your site - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so forth. Any information they type in in any box on the website shall be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment data shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Usually, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be installed, meaning that the overall cost for your online presence shall be higher. While this may not be a problem for a larger enterprise, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small web store that does not generate big profits if additional money should be spent. That's the reason why we have taken advantage of an extension called Server Name Indication (SNI) and we have made it possible to use a shared server IP address to install an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting
packages, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same 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 will not see your website. As our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the moment it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without having to spend more money for that.
