If you'd like to protect the data that visitors submit on your Internet site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, therefore if you have a login form of some kind or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the information is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your Internet site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big profit, 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 Hosting

Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting packages, you can easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with just a couple of mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence if you have a dedicated IP address, you could use it, but if you don't have one and you do not want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been configured especially for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the sole difference will be that if somebody attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Due to the fact that our system features an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the instant it is issued, so you will not have to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you can have a risk-free and reliable site without spending extra cash for that.
