SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is normally required for the SSL installation. If you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting plans, you can quickly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a few mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference will be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Given that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically once it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and reliable site without having to spend more money for that.
