Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a protocol used to encode the info exchanged between a web server and its users. The practical application of employing an SSL is to secure the information which clients submit on your website - a login page, a payment page if you run a web-based store, and so forth. Any content they type in in any box on the site will be submitted safely and securely to the server, so their login or payment data shall be protected from being accessed by unauthorized people. In general, an SSL certificate requires a dedicated IP address to be installed, which suggests the overall cost for your online presence will be bigger. While this may not be an issue for a larger firm, it may matter for a non-profit organization or a small online shop which doesn't generate big profits if additional money should be spent. This is the main reason why we've taken advantage of an extension called Server Name Indication (SNI) and we've made it possible to use a shared server IP address to install an SSL certificate.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Website Hosting
A shared IP can be employed for any SSL certificate, regardless if you purchase it from our company or from some other seller and regardless of the cloud website hosting plan
that you have on our end. If you acquire the SSL through us, you will come across this option on the certificate order page inside your hosting Control Panel where you can also take advantage of the 1-click automatic configuration option that we offer you. If the latter is picked within the SSL order wizard, our system shall install and set up everything for you through the specially configured server shared IP address, therefore once you buy and approve the SSL, there shall not be anything else to do on your end. You could save the money that you will otherwise need to pay for a dedicated IP and the SSL shall function in the same exact way, so any info that the visitors submit shall be encrypted. The only difference is that if you enter the shared IP address instead of your domain name
within a browser, the site will not display.
