SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data that customers submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by making use of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all our website hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything can be set up automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you obtain and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of 2 additional clicks after you fill the necessary information for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL shall not be impacted in any way and any data which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the exact same way. The only difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it that way rather than inputting your domain within the web browser URL bar.
