Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, no matter if you purchase it from us or from some other seller and regardless of the shared website hosting service that you have on our end. If you get the SSL through us, you'll come across this option on the certificate order page in your hosting CP where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer you. If the latter is selected inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP address, therefore once you acquire 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 function in the same exact way, so any data that the website visitors submit will be encoded. The only difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain inside an Internet browser, the website will not display.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP address option is available with all semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes merely 2 mouse clicks within the hosting CP no matter if you buy an SSL from our company or via a third-party supplier. There shall not be any difference in the way the certificate functions or encodes the data that your website visitors submit, so your website will be secure without spending the extra funds for a dedicated IP. The sole thing that'll be different is that https://the-shared-IP will not open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's highly unlikely that anybody shall ever try to access your site in this way rather than typing your domain. We also offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs obtained through our company and if you select it and you choose to use a shared IP rather than a dedicated one, our system will set everything up as soon as the SSL is approved and issued without any action on your end.
