If you would like to protect the data that visitors submit on your site, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any info exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they shall not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the actual content, thus if you have a login form of some sort or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is protected. Typically 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 manage a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big revenue, 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.

When you decide to work with an SSL from our company, everything will be arrange automatically and you will not have to do anything after you buy 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 feature requires a maximum of 2 additional mouse clicks after you fill the required data for the certificate. The proper functioning of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any data which visitors submit on your website will be encrypted and secured in the very same way. The only big difference from using a dedicated address is that http:// won't open your site, but it is unlikely that anybody will ever attempt to access it in this way instead of inputting your domain within the web browser URL bar.
