SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info that clients submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they enter their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the safety of your Internet site and shall make it more inviting to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is usually required for the SSL installation. In case you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you can avoid the additional expense by making use of our services given that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Web Hosting

As we offer SSL certificates with our web hosting plans, you can quickly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, therefore 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, which has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference shall be that if somebody tries to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Given that our system has an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the moment it is issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you'll be able to have a protected and trustworthy website without spending more money for that.
