Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, regardless if you get it from us or from a different seller and regardless of the shared web hosting service that you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you shall find this option on the certificate order page in your hosting CP where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer you. If the latter is selected in the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specially configured server shared IP address, therefore once you buy and approve the SSL, there will not be anything else to do on your end. You'll be able to save the money you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall work in the exact same way, so any data which the visitors submit shall be encrypted. The only difference is that if you input the shared IP address instead of your domain inside a web browser, the site will not show up.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The shared IP address option is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting and the setup takes merely 2 clicks inside the hosting CP regardless if you order an SSL through our enterprise or from a third-party provider. There will not be any difference with regards to how the certificate works or encodes the info that your site visitors submit, so your Internet site will be protected without having to spend the additional funds for a dedicated IP. The only thing which will be different is that https://the-shared-IP won't open your website, unlike https://the-dedicated-IP, but it's extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access your site in this way rather than typing your domain. Additionally we offer an auto-configuration option for the SSLs ordered through our company and if you select it and you decide to use a shared IP rather than a dedicated one, our system shall set everything up the moment the SSL is approved and issued with no need for any action on your end.
