Shared SSL IP
What is a shared SSL IP? How to install an SSL certificate on this sort of an IP?
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 employing an SSL is to protect the info which visitors submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so forth. Any info they input in any box on the site shall be submitted securely to the server, so their login or payment information shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. Normally, an SSL certificate needs a dedicated IP address to be set up, meaning that the overall cost for your web presence will be bigger. While this might not exactly be a problem for a larger business, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that doesn't generate big revenue if additional money should be spent. That is the main reason why we've taken advantage of an extension known as Server Name Indication (SNI) and we've made it possible to use a shared server IP address to install an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting
packages, you can very easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a few mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. As our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically once it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a secure and reliable site without having to spend more money for that.
