If you'd like to protect the information that visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and that is a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the actual content, and so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the info is protected. 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 if you manage a small web store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not generate a big profit, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

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 no more than two additional clicks after you fill the needed information for the certificate. The adequate functioning of the SSL will not be affected in any way and any details which visitors submit on your website shall be encrypted and protected in the exact same way.
