SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information that customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they type in their credit card information, the data shall 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 security of your website and will make it more attractive to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you manage 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 capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services due to the fact 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
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single shared hosting package we offer and irrespective if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall set it up for you within a few seconds and you will not have to do anything yourself. The only difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything will be identical. With this function you'll be able to protect the info of your clients and have a reliable Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.
