SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info that customers submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they input their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your website and shall make it more inviting to consumers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the capital, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services given that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to use this option with all of our shared website hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any dealer. If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this feature requires no more than 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the necessary info for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL won't be influenced in any way and any data which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The one big difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// will not open your site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever attempt to access it that way as opposed to inputting your domain inside the Internet browser URL bar.

The setup is quite basic and if you obtain the certificate from our company, you could also take advantage of our SSL wizard where with simply several clicks you'll be able to select the SSL to be installed automatically for the particular domain or subdomain on the shared IP address that is configured to be used for this particular purpose. This option shall save you time and work given that you'll not have to do anything after you approve the SSL via e mail, not mentioning the cash you will save for the IP on a monthly basis. Your Internet site shall be secured and any customer will feel confident that their data shall be protected given that using a shared IP address does not affect the adequate performance of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP can't be used as a URL to access your Internet site.
