If you want to protect the information which visitors submit on your website, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol employed to encrypt any information exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee 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 literally impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the data is secure. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big profit, 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.

If you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you won't need to do anything after you order 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 installed by our system, so using this feature requires only two additional mouse clicks after you fill the required info for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any info that site visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and protected in the same exact 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 anybody will ever try to access it this way as opposed to typing your domain inside the browser URL bar.
