SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information that customers 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 will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically required for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by making use 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
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every cloud web hosting plan we offer and no matter if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also pick our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall do the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you won't have to do anything yourself. The only difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be exactly the same. With this function you can protect the info of your customers and have a reliable Internet site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.
