Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every cloud web hosting solution we offer and irrespective if the SSL is obtained through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only can you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a few seconds and you will not need to do anything manually. The sole difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything will be exactly the same. With this feature you could protect the information of your customers and have a secure website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Any SSL certificate can be used with our specially configured shared IPs, so if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you can use this option with simply several clicks when you install a certificate that you obtain through us or through any other vendor. For the SSLs that we offer you are also able to take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. That way the moment you approve the SSL, the shared IP shall be set for the given domain name or subdomain and the certificate shall be installed without any action required on your end, and thus any data that site visitors submit on your site shall be secure. The SSL will perform in the exact same way irrespective if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the one thing that is different between the two setups is that entering the shared IP as a URL in an Internet browser will not open your website.
