Shared SSL IP in Hosting
You could use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every single hosting plan we offer and regardless if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also select our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a few seconds and you'll not need to do anything yourself. The only difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything will be identical. With this feature you'll be able to protect the information of your customers and have a reliable site without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
Any SSL certificate could be used with our specially configured shared IPs, therefore if you have a semi-dedicated server account, you can use this option with simply a couple of clicks when you install a certificate you acquire through us or through another vendor. For the SSLs we offer you are also able to take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. This way the minute you approve the SSL, the shared IP will be set for the given domain name or subdomain and the certificate will be installed without any action needed on your end, and thus any data that site visitors submit on your Internet site will be protected. The SSL shall perform in the exact same way irrespective if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the 1 thing which is different between the two setups is that typing the shared IP as a URL within a browser will not open your Internet site.
