Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you get it from us or from a different retailer and regardless of the cloud hosting service which you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you'll come across this option on the certificate order page in your hosting Control Panel where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP, so once you obtain and approve the SSL, there shall 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 will do the job in the same exact way, so any data that the website visitors submit will be encrypted. The sole difference is that if you input the shared IP instead of your domain within a browser, the website will not show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
Any SSL certificate could be used with our specially configured shared IPs, so if you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can use this option with just a couple of mouse clicks when you install a certificate which you acquire through us or through another vendor. For the SSLs which we offer you can also take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. Thus the instant you approve the SSL, the shared IP address will be set for the particular domain or subdomain and the certificate will be installed without any action required on your end, so any info that site visitors submit on your site shall be secure. The SSL will function in the same exact way irrespective if it's set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the one thing which is different between the two setups is that inputting the shared IP address as a URL within an Internet browser won't open your Internet site.
