SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data that users submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire 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, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your website and will make it more inviting to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the funds, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting packages, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, therefore if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Due to the fact that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be set up automatically once it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a protected and reliable Internet site without having to spend extra cash for that.
