If you'd like to protect the information which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any information exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the authentic content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the information is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big income, so to save you the money, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with every cloud web hosting solution which we offer and irrespective if the SSL is bought through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only can you choose the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also pick our auto-configuration option, so as soon as you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system shall install it for you within a few seconds and you'll not need to do anything by hand. The one difference between using a shared IP address and a dedicated one is that your Internet site will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but other than that, everything shall be identical. With this feature you'll be able to protect the info of your customers and have a risk-free site without the additional expense for a dedicated IP.
