SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info which users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that 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 need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the capital, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each hosting solution that we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered through our company or through a third-party business. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a few seconds and you'll not need to do anything manually. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in case you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the data of your customers and have a secure site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.
