SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encrypts the info which clients submit on an Internet site. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and goods online and they type in their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, which means that an unauthorized third-party shall not able to see it. An SSL certificate will raise the security of your site and will make it more appealing to customers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you need to spend more funds for a dedicated IP address, which is normally needed for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the capital, you'll be able to avoid the additional expense by making use of our services due to the fact that our cloud web hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
