Shared SSL IP
What's a shared SSL IP? How one can install an SSL certificate on this kind of an IP?
If you would like to protect the data that visitors submit on your Internet site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encode any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the real content, so if you have a login form of some type or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the info is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter in case you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the funds, our cloud 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 can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you acquire it from our company or from another seller and regardless of the cloud hosting service
you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you will discover this option on the certificate order page in your hosting Control Panel where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is chosen inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specifically configured server shared IP address, so once you buy and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the money that you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall function in the same exact way, so any data that the website visitors submit will be encoded. The only difference is that if you input the shared IP address instead of your domain
in an Internet browser, the Internet site won't appear.
