SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that users submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy goods and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, so an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your website and shall make it more attractive to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is normally required 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 can find better use for the funds, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our website hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything can be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires only 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required information for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL shall not be affected in any way and any details which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The one big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it this way rather than entering your domain name in the world-wide web browser URL bar.
