SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encodes the information which customers submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your site and shall make it more inviting to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the money, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services given that our cloud 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 address for an SSL certificate with each and every shared web hosting package we offer and no matter if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party business. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also select our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not have to do anything by hand. The sole difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but apart from that, everything will be the same. With this function you'll be able to protect the data of your clients and have a risk-free Internet site without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
