Websites are hosted on servers, which are computers continually linked to the internet. Most smaller websites don't have their own dedicated server, so they share space on a server with lots of other websites. This is called 'shared hosting'. Individual websites on the shared host can then be accessed by a one joint address ( a 'shared IP address').
The alternative is to set up a unique access point on the shared server to an individual website . This is known as a Dedicated IP address.
Benefits of a dedicated IP address include:
1) A level of secure access required by higher level SSL certificates.
2) Reduce email blacklisting which can impact your emails being received which can be imposed through the operation of other websites on the shared server
Https:// and the padlock that show at the top of a browser are key signs of trust approval by search engines. Google warns against sites without https;// and 'unsecure' sites are marked down in search results. Most internet users now know not to enter any personal information into a site that does not display this security marker. This is the reason that all JS Consulting hosting packages now include some form of SSL certificate. Anything less will let your website down!
Free certificates by Let's Encrypt are a basic solution that give a website a quick and easy solution to the 'https://' requirement on a web browser. Let's Encrypt is an open and automated certificate authority to encrypt communication between your web server and your users. However, because Let's encrypt is automated and don't require an individual IP address to identify a specific website, the level of actual authentication and encryption is limited and not recommended for e-commerce and sites which hold personal information on the server.
RapidSSL is a 128 / 256 bit single root SSL certificate. Linked to a dedicated IP address it is a strong 128 / 256 bit encryption, industry standard SSL. This makes it an ideal entry solution for securing websites driven by a database or conducting light levels of e-commerce.
GeoTrust QuickSSL web server certificates means you can conduct secure online transactions with confidence, quickly and cost effectively. By activating the browser's "LOCK" icon, QuickSSL enables up to 256-bit encryption and assures online visitors that confidential information and transactions cannot be viewed, intercepted or altered. This is why the Geotrust SSL certificate is our recommended option for e-commerce and sites that gather personal information.
Other security certificates. We can arrange for other levels of GeoTrust certificates on request
Although payment can be made monthly, dedicated IP addresses and SSL certificates involve an annual commitment. Our agreement to provide these services is on the basis of a renewable annual contract.
