If you'd like to protect the info that visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encrypt any information exchanged between a website and its users as to ensure that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the actual content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the data is secure. Normally a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your website. The additional cost may matter when you manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big income, so to save you the money, 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 shall be arrange automatically and you will not need to do anything after you buy and approve the certificate. The SSL order wizard will enable you to pick 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 info for the certificate. The proper operation of the SSL won't be impacted in any way and any data that visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The only difference from working with a dedicated address is that http:// shall not open your Internet site, but it is extremely unlikely that anybody will ever seek to access it that way instead of typing your domain name inside the Internet browser URL bar.

In this way everything can be installed for you on the shared IP the moment you approve the SSL. With this service we grant you the chance to preserve the info of your site users at no additional cost and without affecting the way the SSL shall encode the info in any way.
