Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single shared hosting plan we offer and regardless if the SSL is acquired through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only can you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will install it for you within a couple of seconds and you won't have to do anything by hand. The sole difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you could protect the info of your customers and have a reliable site without the added expense for a dedicated IP address.
Shared SSL IP in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Any SSL certificate can be used with our specifically configured shared IPs, thus if you have a semi-dedicated hosting account, you could use this option with only several mouse clicks when you install a certificate you obtain through us or through another dealer. For the SSLs we offer you can also take advantage of another function and have our system set everything up for you. This way once you approve the SSL, the shared IP address will be set for the particular domain or subdomain and the certificate shall be installed without any action expected on your end, and thus any data that site visitors submit on your website will be secure. The SSL shall perform in the exact same way no matter if it is set on a shared or a dedicated IP address and the one thing that is different between the two setups is that entering the shared IP address as a URL in a web browser will not open your site.
