SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the information which clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the protection of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's typically needed for the SSL installation. In case you run a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are 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 due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

You'll be able to use this option with all our shared hosting solutions and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. If you choose to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you will not have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this feature requires a maximum of two additional clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any info that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact way. The only difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it that way instead of entering your domain within the browser URL bar.
