SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information that customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all our hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you prefer to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you won't have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The adequate functioning of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any details which website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The one difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it in this way as opposed to entering your domain inside the world-wide web browser URL bar.
