If you'd like to protect the data that visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional expense may matter if you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting
As we offer SSL certificates with our website hosting solutions, you can very easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, therefore 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 this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the only difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they won't see your site. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the instant it is issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and reliable site without having to spend extra money for that.
