SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the data that clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your site and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting solutions, you can quickly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. As our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the moment it's issued, so you shall 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.
