Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you get it from our company or from another dealer and regardless of the web hosting service that you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you shall come across this option on the certificate order page in your hosting Control Panel where you can also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is selected inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP address, therefore once you acquire and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the money you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will function in the same exact way, so any data which the visitors submit shall be encoded. The sole difference is that if you input the shared IP address instead of your domain inside a web browser, the site shall not show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP option is available with all semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes only two clicks inside the hosting CP regardless if you purchase an SSL via our enterprise or through a third-party supplier. There will not be any difference with regards to how the certificate operates or encodes the data that your site visitors submit, so your website shall be protected without having to spend any additional money for a dedicated IP. The one thing that will be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your site, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's unlikely that anyone will ever try to access your internet site in this way instead of entering your domain. In addition, we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs acquired via our company and if you select it and you opt to use a shared IP rather than a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued without the need for any action on your end.
