Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting
A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you acquire it from us or from another dealer and regardless of the website hosting package that you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you will find this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you could also take full advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is chosen in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you through the specifically configured server shared IP address, thus once you obtain and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the cash you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will work in the exact same way, so any info the visitors submit will be encrypted. The only difference is that if you enter the shared IP instead of your domain name in a browser, the site will not show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Any SSL certificate can be employed with our specially configured shared IPs, therefore if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you could use this option with only a few clicks when you install a certificate you obtain through us or through any other vendor. For the SSLs we offer you could also take advantage of an additional function and have our system set everything up for you. That way as soon as you approve the SSL, the shared IP will be set for the specific domain name or subdomain and the certificate shall be installed without any action required on your end, so any data that visitors submit on your website will be secure. The SSL shall perform in the same exact way no matter if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the one thing that is different between the two setups is that inputting the shared IP address as a URL within an Internet browser shall not open your website.
