Shared SSL IP
Discover what a shared SSL IP is and how you could use one to instantly set up an SSL certificate.
Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol used to encrypt the data exchanged between a hosting server and its users. The practical application of using an SSL is to protect the information which visitors submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so on. Any information they type in in any box on the site shall be submitted safely to the server, so their login or payment details shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized individuals. In general, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be installed, which implies the overall cost for your online presence will be bigger. While this might not exactly be a problem for a larger enterprise, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that does not generate big earnings if additional money should be spent. That is the key reason why we've taken advantage of an extension referred to as Server Name Indication (SNI) and we've made it possible to use a shared server IP address to set up an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every shared hosting package which we offer and no matter if the SSL is ordered through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also select our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall do the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not need to do anything personally. The sole difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything will be identical. With this feature you'll be able to protect the info of your customers and have a reliable Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.
