SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that clients submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your website and will make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. In case you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the capital, you could avoid the additional expense by making use 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 Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can very easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only a couple of clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and trustworthy website without having to spend more money for that.
