If you want to protect the info which visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some kind or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the data is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter if you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting solutions, you can quickly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a few clicks. The option will be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP address, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the sole difference shall be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Since our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you'll not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and trustworthy site without having to spend more money for that.
