Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you acquire it from us or from some other retailer and regardless of the web hosting package which you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you will come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer. If the latter is chosen in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specially configured server shared IP address, so once you obtain and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall do the job in the exact same way, so any info that the website visitors submit will be encoded. The sole difference is that if you enter the shared IP instead of your domain name inside a browser, the website will not show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and the setup takes only two clicks in the hosting Control Panel regardless if you purchase an SSL through our company or via a third-party supplier. There will not be any difference in the way the certificate functions or encrypts the information that your website visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without having to spend the additional cash for a dedicated IP address. The sole thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone shall ever try to access your site in this way instead of inputting your domain name. 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 instead of a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
