SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which 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 products online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the extra 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 Shared Website Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single shared website hosting solution that we offer and irrespective if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is obtained on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you'll not need to do anything manually. The one difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be the same. With this feature you could protect the info of your customers and have a risk-free site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.
