SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information that users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire products and services online and they input their credit card details, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and will make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is typically needed 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 better use for the funds, you can avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that 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 Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your Internet site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically as soon as it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you could have a risk-free and reliable website without having to spend more money for that.
