Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you purchase it from our company or from some other vendor and regardless of the shared hosting service you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you shall discover this option on the certificate order page within your hosting CP where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is chosen within the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP address, thus once you buy and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money that you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall do the job in the exact same way, so any information which the visitors submit shall be encoded. The sole difference is that if you enter the shared IP address instead of your domain within an Internet 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 and the setup takes only a couple of clicks inside the hosting CP no matter if you get an SSL from our business or from a third-party vendor. There won't be any difference with regards to how the certificate functions or encodes the info your website visitors submit, so your website will be protected without spending any additional funds for a dedicated IP. The only thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's quite unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your internet site in this way rather than typing your domain. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs ordered via our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP as opposed to a dedicated one, our system will set everything up the instant the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
