SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the information which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, thus an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your site and will make it more inviting to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally required for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the funds, you could avoid the extra expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Web Hosting
You shall be able to use this option with all of our shared web hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. If you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you will not need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any info which site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The one big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it this way as opposed to typing your domain name in the world-wide web browser URL bar.
