Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you acquire it from our company or from a different vendor and regardless of the cloud hosting service you have on our end. If you get the SSL from us, you'll come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you can also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is chosen within the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specifically configured server shared IP, so once you order and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the funds you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will do the job in the exact same way, so any information which the website visitors submit shall be encoded. The one difference is that if you enter the shared IP address instead of your domain inside an Internet browser, the site won't show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
Any SSL certificate could be used with our specifically set up shared IPs, thus if you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can use this option with just several mouse clicks when you install a certificate that you obtain through us or through some other retailer. For the SSLs that we offer you can also take advantage of an extra function and have our system set everything up for you. Thus once you approve the SSL, the shared IP will be set for the particular domain or subdomain and the certificate will be installed without any action required on your end, and so any info that website visitors submit on your website shall be protected. The SSL will perform in the same exact way irrespective if it's set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the only thing which is different between the two setups is that typing the shared IP as a URL in an Internet browser shall not open your Internet site.
