Shared SSL IP in Hosting
A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, no matter if you acquire it from us or from another retailer and regardless of the hosting service that you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you'll come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you could also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is picked within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you through the specifically configured server shared IP address, therefore 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 shall function in the exact same way, so any information the site visitors submit will be encrypted. The sole difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain in a browser, the site shall not show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
Any SSL certificate could be employed with our specially set up shared IPs, therefore if you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to use this option with only several mouse clicks when you install a certificate that you acquire through us or through some other dealer. For the SSLs that we offer you could also take advantage of an additional function and have our system set everything up for you. That way the instant you approve the SSL, the shared IP will be set for the specific domain or subdomain and the certificate shall be installed without any action needed on your end, and so 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's set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the one thing which is different between the two setups is that entering the shared IP address as a URL in a browser will not open your website.
