SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods 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 won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your website and shall make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by making use of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting solutions, you can very easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a protected and trustworthy site without spending extra cash for that.
