Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
A shared IP can be used for any SSL certificate, no matter if you purchase it from us or from a different dealer and regardless of the shared website hosting package you have on our end. If you obtain the SSL from us, you will come across this option on the certificate order page within your hosting CP where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option we offer. If the latter is picked within the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specifically configured server shared IP address, therefore once you buy and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds that you'll otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL will function in the exact same way, so any info the website visitors submit will be encoded. The only difference is that if you input the shared IP address instead of your domain name in a browser, the website won't display.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Any SSL certificate could be used with our specially set up shared IPs, so if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you'll be able to use this option with simply a couple of clicks when you install a certificate which you obtain through us or through some other dealer. 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 moment you approve the SSL, the shared IP address will be set for the particular domain name 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 website shall be secure. The SSL will function in the exact same way irrespective if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP and the only thing that is different between the two setups is that entering the shared IP address as a URL in an Internet browser shall not open your Internet site.
