Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
A shared IP could be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you acquire it from our company or from some other retailer and regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you'll come across this option on the certificate order page in your hosting Control Panel where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP address, therefore once you order and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds that you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will work in the same exact way, so any data the site visitors submit will be encoded. The one difference is that if you enter the shared IP address instead of your domain name inside a browser, the Internet site won't display.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated plans and the setup takes just 2 clicks within the hosting CP regardless if you obtain an SSL from our business or via a third-party vendor. There will not be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encrypts the data your site visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without having to spend the extra money for a dedicated IP address. The one thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's quite unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your website in this way rather than keying in your domain name. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired through our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP instead of a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
