If you'd like to protect the info which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any information exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the authentic content, thus if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the info is secure. Usually a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you run a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Website Hosting
You'll be able to use this option with all our website hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you will not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires only two additional clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL will not be impacted in any way and any information that website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The one difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it that way instead of typing your domain within the world-wide web browser URL bar.
