SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the data that clients submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they type in their credit card information, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and will make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by making use of our services since 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 Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every shared web hosting plan we offer and irrespective if the SSL is acquired through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only will you be able to choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a matter of seconds and you won't have to do anything manually. The sole difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be identical. With this function you'll be able to protect the information of your clients and have a risk-free site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP address.
