SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the information which customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and will make it more attractive to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you can avoid the additional expense by making use of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting packages, you can very easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option will be available during the order process, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. As our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a protected and reliable website without spending more money for that.
