Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you buy it from us or from a different dealer and regardless of the shared hosting service that you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is selected inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP, therefore once you buy and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the funds you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will work in the same exact way, so any information the website visitors submit shall be encoded. The one difference is that if you input the shared IP address instead of your domain inside a web browser, the site won't show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated service and the setup takes only 2 mouse clicks within the hosting CP regardless if you get an SSL via our company or through a third-party vendor. There shall not be any difference in the way the certificate functions or encodes the info which your site visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without spending the extra cash for a dedicated IP address. The only thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's highly unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your internet site in this way rather than keying in your domain. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs ordered through our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP instead of a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the minute the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
