SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the data that users submit on an Internet site. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they acquire services and goods online and they enter their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, hence 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 need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you manage a small e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find much better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services as our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.

If you prefer to work with an SSL from our company, everything shall be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you purchase and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to choose a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of two additional mouse clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The appropriate operation of the SSL shall not be influenced in any way and any info that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The one big difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your Internet site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it this way instead of entering your domain inside the world-wide web browser URL bar.
