SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the data which clients 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 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 will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your Internet site and will make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically required for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the funds, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud web 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
You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every shared website hosting plan that we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered 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 may also select 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 will not need to do anything by hand. The one difference between using a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but aside from that, everything shall be the same. With this feature you can protect the info of your customers and have a reliable site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.
