SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the data which clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and products online and they input their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the security of your site and shall make it more attractive to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. In case you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you can avoid the added expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting packages, you can very easily secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been configured specifically for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Due to the fact that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically as soon as it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a protected and reliable website without spending more money for that.
