Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
You can use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every single shared web hosting plan which we offer and regardless if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party company. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall handle the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you will not need to do anything yourself. The one difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be the same. With this function you could protect the info of your clients and have a risk-free website without the added expense for a dedicated IP.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated servers and the setup takes merely a couple of clicks inside the hosting CP no matter if you buy an SSL through our company or via a third-party provider. There shall not be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encrypts the info that your site visitors submit, so your website will be secure without spending the extra money for a dedicated IP address. The sole thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your site in this way instead of keying in your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs bought through our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP address as opposed to a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
