SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information that customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they input their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given 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 Cloud Web Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. As our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically once it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a risk-free and reliable site without having to spend extra cash for that.
