SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data that users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is usually needed 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 far better use for the capital, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact that 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 Website Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting plans, you can quickly secure your site and use a shared IP address with only a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence 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'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Given that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the moment it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra money for that.
