Shared SSL IP
What's a shared SSL IP? How to install an SSL certificate on this type of an IP?
Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol used to encrypt the information exchanged between a server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to protect the info which site visitors submit on your Internet site - a login page, a payment page if you run an Internet store, and so forth. Any information they type in in any box on the Internet site will be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment information will be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. In general, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be installed, meaning that the overall cost for your web presence shall be bigger. While this might not be an issue for a larger enterprise, it might matter for a non-profit organization or a small online store that doesn't generate big income if additional money should be spent. That's the key reason why we've taken advantage of an extension referred to as Server Name Indication (SNI) and we have made it possible to use a shared server IP address to install an SSL certificate.

The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it.
