SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the data which clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the protection of your site and will make it more attractive to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you have to spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, that is usually needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find better use for the funds, you can avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting

You'll be able to use this option with all our cloud website hosting plans and with any SSL certificate issued from any vendor. When you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you'll not have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick a shared IP address to be used and the SSL to be set up by our system, so using this function requires no more than two additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed info for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any details which website visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the very same way. The sole big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever seek to access it that way as opposed to inputting your domain within the web browser URL bar.

In this way everything could be set up for you on the shared IP the minute you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the opportunity to protect the information of your website users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encrypt the information in any way.
