SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data that clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single web hosting solution we offer and no matter if the SSL is bought through our company or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall handle the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you will not need to do anything yourself. The one difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything shall be the same. With this feature you can protect the info of your clients and have a risk-free site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.
