SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which clients submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your site and shall make it more attractive to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 of our shared web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires no more than two additional clicks after you fill the needed data for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any data which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The only difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it in this way instead of typing your domain in the web browser URL bar.
