If you want to protect the information that visitors submit on your Internet site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any information exchanged between a site and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any information, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, thus if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate will be an assurance that the information is secure. Normally 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 run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity that does not generate a big revenue, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

When you choose to use an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you won't have to do anything after you order and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will allow you to select 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 2 additional clicks after you fill the required details for the certificate. The adequate operation of the SSL won't be affected in any way and any information that website visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the exact same way. The sole difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will ever try to access it in this way rather than typing your domain inside the world-wide web browser URL bar.
