If you'd like to protect the information that visitors submit on your Internet site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall 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 when you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big revenue, so to save you the cash, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our shared website hosting solutions, you can quickly secure your website and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, so if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up specifically for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. As our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a secure and trustworthy site without spending extra cash for that.
