SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info which clients submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your site and shall make it more attractive to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can quickly secure your website and use a shared IP address with just a few mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you could use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without having to spend extra cash for that.
