SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info which clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they type in their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the safety of your website and will make it more appealing to clients, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest 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 capital, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services as 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 Website Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every cloud website hosting plan we offer and irrespective if the SSL is ordered through our company or through a third-party business. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only could you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you may also select our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall handle the installation for you within a matter of seconds and you won't have to do anything by hand. The sole difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be identical. With this function you could protect the information of your clients and have a reliable website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP.
