SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your site and will make it more attractive to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact 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 will be able to use this option with all our cloud web hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you will not need to do anything after you purchase 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 function requires no more than 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The adequate functioning of the SSL will not be influenced in any way and any details that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever try to access it this way as opposed to entering your domain within the browser URL bar.
