SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that users submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, therefore an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and will make it more attractive to consumers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically required for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you could avoid the extra expense by making use of our services given that 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 Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all of our cloud hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be set up automatically and you'll not need to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The appropriate functioning of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any details that site visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The one difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it in this way rather than inputting your domain in the Internet browser URL bar.
