SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they type in their credit card info, 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 will make it more inviting to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all our web hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you won't need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires only two additional clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any details that site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it this way as opposed to inputting your domain in the web browser URL bar.
