If you would like to protect the information that visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any information exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will 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 Internet site. The additional expense may matter if you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big income, 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 Cloud Hosting
Due to the fact that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting packages, you can very easily secure your Internet site and use a shared IP address with only a few clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, so if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this type of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the very same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the only difference will be that if someone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they will not see your Internet site. Since our system includes an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be set up automatically the moment it's issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you could have a protected and trustworthy website without spending extra cash for that.
