If you wish to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any information exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any data, they will 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, thus if you have a login form of some sort or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the data is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter if you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud web hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Hosting
Since we offer SSL certificates with our shared hosting plans, you can effortlessly secure your site and use a shared IP address with just several clicks. The option shall be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP address, you'll be able to use it, but if you do not have one and you don't want to pay for this sort of a service, you'll be able to use the shared IP, which has been configured particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your website. Given that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically once it's issued, so you'll not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. This way, you'll be able to have a risk-free and trustworthy site without having to spend extra cash for that.
