Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol used to encrypt the information exchanged between a server and its users. The practical application of using an SSL is to protect the data that clients submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so forth. Any data they input in any box on the website shall be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment data shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Typically, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be installed, meaning that the overall cost for your web presence will be bigger. While this might not exactly be an issue for a larger business, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online shop which doesn't generate big profits if additional money should be spent. This is the key 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 Cloud Web Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting packages, you can effortlessly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically the instant it's issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without having to spend extra money for that.
