Shared SSL IP in Hosting
A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, no matter if you get it from us or from another seller and regardless of the hosting service you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you can also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is chosen within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you through the specifically configured server shared IP, therefore once you obtain and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the cash that you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will do the job in the exact same way, so any information that the visitors submit will be encrypted. The sole difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain within an Internet browser, the website shall not appear.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes merely 2 mouse clicks within the hosting CP irrespective if you purchase an SSL from our enterprise or from a third-party supplier. There won't be any difference in terms of how the certificate functions or encodes the information your site visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without spending the extra money for a dedicated IP. The sole thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's highly unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your internet site in this way instead of entering your domain. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought through our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP address as opposed to 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.
