SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which users submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you could avoid the additional expense by making use 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 Website Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our website hosting plans, you can easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option will be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this type of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your website. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without having to spend extra cash for that.
