Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you purchase it from us or from some other seller and regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL from us, you will find this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is chosen inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you via the specially configured server shared IP address, so once you buy and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall work in the same exact way, so any info that the visitors submit shall be encoded. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP address instead of your domain name in an Internet browser, the website will not display.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Servers
Any SSL certificate could be used with our specifically set up shared IPs, therefore if you have a semi-dedicated server account, you'll be able to use this option with just a few mouse clicks when you install a certificate that you acquire through us or through any other retailer. For the SSLs we offer you could also take advantage of another 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 particular domain name or subdomain and the certificate will be installed without any action expected on your end, so any data that site visitors submit on your website will be protected. The SSL will perform in the same exact way irrespective if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the 1 thing which is different between the two setups is that entering the shared IP address as a URL inside a web browser will not open your website.
