If you'd like to protect the data which visitors submit on your Internet site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol used to encode any data exchanged between an Internet site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any data, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The existing level of encryption makes it literally impossible to decrypt the authentic content, therefore if you have a login form of some type or you offer products and services online and customers submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the data is protected. Normally a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional cost may matter in case you run a small web shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't generate a big profit, so to save you the funds, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

This option will save you time and efforts since you'll not need to do anything after you approve the SSL via e-mail, not mentioning the money you'll save for the IP address on a monthly basis. Your website shall be protected and any client will feel assured that their info will be protected given that using a shared IP address doesn't affect the proper functioning of the certificate and the sole difference from using a dedicated one is that the IP cannot be used as a URL to access your site.
