SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info which customers submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you have 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 can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 Shared Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all of our shared hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires no more than two additional clicks after you fill the required information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any details that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The sole difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it this way rather than entering your domain in the browser URL bar.
