Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you get it from us or from a different vendor and regardless of the cloud hosting package you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL from 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 chosen within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP, therefore once you order and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the money that you'll otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall work in the same exact way, so any info which the site visitors submit will be encrypted. The one difference is that if you input the shared IP instead of your domain name within a browser, the website will not appear.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Any SSL certificate could be used with our specially set up shared IPs, thus if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to use this option with only several mouse clicks when you install a certificate that you obtain through us or through another retailer. For the SSLs that we offer you could also take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. In this way the instant you approve the SSL, the shared IP address shall be set for the given domain name or subdomain and the certificate will be installed with no action required on your end, so any info that website visitors submit on your website will be secure. The SSL will perform in the same exact 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 inputting the shared IP as a URL inside a web browser will not open your site.
