Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you purchase it from us or from a different dealer and regardless of the web hosting service that you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL from us, you'll discover this option on the certificate order page in your hosting CP where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you through the specifically configured server shared IP, thus once you order and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You can save the cash that you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will work in the same exact way, so any info the website visitors submit will be encoded. The only difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain in a web browser, the site shall not display.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes merely a couple of clicks in the hosting CP regardless if you get an SSL through our business or via a third-party provider. There will not be any difference in the way the certificate functions or encodes the info that your visitors submit, so your Internet site will be protected without having to spend the additional cash for a dedicated IP. The one thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP shall not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it is unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your website in this way rather than keying in your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained via our company and if you select it and you decide 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 any action on your end.
