SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use 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 Web Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only several clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a secure and reliable website without having to spend more money for that.
