SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the additional 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 Shared Web Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all our shared web hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you won't need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires no more than 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required information for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any details which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The one big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it that way instead of typing your domain name inside the world-wide web browser URL bar.
