SSL, which stands short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the info that clients submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they enter their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will increase the security of your website and shall make it more appealing to clients, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend extra money for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you have a small e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the money, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services since our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

A shared IP could be used for any SSL certificate, irrespective if you get it from our company or from another dealer and regardless of the cloud website hosting package you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL from us, you'll discover this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting CP where you could also make use of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer. If the latter is picked inside the SSL order wizard, our system will install and set up everything for you using the specially configured server shared IP address, therefore once you order and approve the SSL, there won't be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money you will otherwise have to pay for a dedicated IP address and the SSL will work in the exact same way, so any data which the website visitors submit will be encoded. The one difference is that if you type the shared IP instead of your domain name inside an Internet browser, the Internet site shall not appear.
