SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which users submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they type in their credit card details, the data shall 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 heighten the protection of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that's normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you could avoid the added expense by making use of our services since 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 Web Hosting
You can use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every web hosting solution which we offer and regardless if the SSL is purchased through us or through a third-party firm. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only can you select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will handle the installation for you within a few seconds and you won't need to do anything yourself. The only difference between employing a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your website won't appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address rather than https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be the same. With this function you could protect the information of your clients and have a reliable site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.
