If you'd like to protect the info which visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, thus if you have a login form of some type or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter if you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
You could use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with every single shared hosting solution that we offer and regardless if the SSL is ordered through our company or through a third-party company. If the SSL is bought on our end, not only can you pick the shared IP to be set during the order, but you could also select our auto-configuration option, so when you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will do the installation for you within a couple of seconds and you'll not need to do anything personally. The sole difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your site won't appear if you try to open https://the-IP-address instead of https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything will be exactly the same. With this feature you'll be able to protect the information of your customers and have a secure website without the extra expense for a dedicated IP address.
