If you'd like to protect the information which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the real content, so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the info is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter in case you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
Considering that we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting solutions, you can effortlessly secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, hence if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this sort of a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference will be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it's issued, so you shall not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you can have a protected and trustworthy website without spending more money for that.
