SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your website and shall make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a small 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 funds, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our hosting packages, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a risk-free and trustworthy website without having to spend more money for that.
