If you wish to protect the data which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any info exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the authentic content, so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the info is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that doesn't make a big income, 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 Cloud Hosting
Given that we offer SSL certificates with our cloud hosting plans, you can easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with just several mouse clicks. The option will be available during the order process, thus if you have a dedicated IP, you can use it, but if you don't have one and you don't want to pay for this kind of a service, you can use the shared IP, that has been set up especially for SSLs. The certificate will work in the same exact way as if it had a dedicated IP address and the one difference shall be that if anyone tries to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your site. Due to the fact that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL will be installed automatically the instant it's issued, so you shall not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. That way, you can have a risk-free and reliable Internet site without spending extra cash for that.
