SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the information that clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and will make it more appealing to customers, but besides the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra 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 Cloud Website Hosting

A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you get it from us or from some other retailer and regardless of the cloud website hosting package which you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you'll discover this option on the certificate order page within your hosting Control Panel where you can also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option which we offer. If the latter is selected inside the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you via the specifically configured server shared IP address, so once you order and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the funds you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL shall work in the exact same way, so any info that the site visitors submit will be encoded. The sole difference is that if you enter the shared IP instead of your domain name in an Internet browser, the Internet site shall not display.
