SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information that users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services since our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all of our hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires no more than 2 additional clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any information which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it in this way instead of inputting your domain within the Internet browser URL bar.
