SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data that customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're 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 taking advantage of our services due to the fact 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 Cloud Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting plans, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Since our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the moment it's issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and trustworthy website without having to spend extra cash for that.
