SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that clients submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they acquire goods and services online and they input 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 raise the safety of your Internet site and will make it more inviting to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is limited or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added 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.

You will be able to use this option with all our hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select 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 needed information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any information that site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The sole big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it that way instead of inputting your domain name within the browser URL bar.

This option shall save you time and work since you won't have to do anything after you approve the SSL via email, not mentioning the cash you shall save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your site will be secured and any customer will feel assured that their information shall be protected given that using a shared IP address does not influence the adequate functioning of the certificate and the only real difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP address cannot be used as a URL to access your website.
