SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the info which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they type in their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every shared hosting plan which we offer and regardless if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall set it up for you within a few seconds and you will not need to do anything by hand. The one difference between employing a shared IP 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 besides that, everything will be the same. With this feature you could protect the data of your customers and have a reliable website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.
