If you would like to protect the info that visitors submit on your Internet site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any information, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the data is protected. Usually 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 online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big revenue, 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
You will be able to use this option with all our cloud hosting packages and with any SSL certificate issued from any retailer. When you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you will not have to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will permit you to choose a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any details which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The only difference from employing a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your website, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it in this way rather than typing your domain within the web browser URL bar.
