If you'd like to protect the info which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encrypt any info exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee 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 literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate shall 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 Internet site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not make a big income, so to save you the cash, 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
Since we offer SSL certificates with our cloud web hosting solutions, you can very easily secure your website and use a shared IP address with only several mouse clicks. The option shall be available during the order procedure, hence 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 type of a service, you could use the shared IP, that has been set up particularly for SSLs. The certificate shall work in the exact same way as if it had a dedicated IP and the one difference shall be that if someone attempts to open the IP address as a URL, they'll not see your Internet site. Given that our system comes with an auto-configuration option, the SSL shall be installed automatically the moment it's issued, so you will not need to do anything on your end after you approve it. In this way, you could have a risk-free and reliable site without spending extra cash for that.
