If you wish to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encrypt any info exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big income, so to save you the money, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud website hosting solutions, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only several clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you do not want to pay for such a service, you can use the shared IP, which has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate will work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference shall be that if anyone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Due to the fact that our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the instant it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a secure and trustworthy Internet site without spending extra money for that.
