SSL, which is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which enciphers the info which clients submit on an Internet site. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they purchase goods and services online and they type in their credit card details, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence an unauthorized third-party won't be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your website and shall make it more inviting to clients, but besides the cost for the SSL, you must spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, that is normally required for the SSL installation. In case you manage a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is restricted or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you could find much better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the extra expense by making use of our services since our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
Shared SSL IP in Shared Website Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP address for an SSL certificate with each and every shared website hosting
package we offer and irrespective if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party company.

.
