SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information that clients submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the capital, you can avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single web hosting plan which we offer and irrespective if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is acquired on our end, not only could you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a couple of seconds and you will not have to do anything manually. The only difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your Internet site won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be identical. With this function you could protect the data of your customers and have a secure Internet site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.
