SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info that customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they type in their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all of our web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate. The adequate functioning of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any info which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The only difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it in this way rather than entering your domain name within the browser URL bar.
