SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information 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 input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your site and will make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our shared web hosting packages, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your site. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy website without spending extra cash for that.
