SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information which clients submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your site and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services as our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to use this option with all of our cloud hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be set up automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary data for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any details which site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and secured in the same exact way. The only difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it that way instead of inputting your domain name within the browser URL bar.
