SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that enciphers the info which customers submit on a website. If they input a username and a password on a login page or they purchase products and services online and they enter their credit card information, the data will be exchanged with the hosting server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the safety of your website and shall make it more appealing to consumers, but in addition to the cost for the SSL, you must spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually required for the SSL installation. If you run a small e-commerce portal and your budget is small or you're a part of a non-profit organization and you can find far better use for the money, you'll be able to avoid the added expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
