If you wish to protect the data that visitors submit on your site, you'll need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation refers to Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol employed to encode any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they will not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it practically impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some sort or you offer goods and services online and customers submit credit card info, 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 Internet site. The additional cost may matter if you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big profit, so to save you the funds, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.

The SSL order wizard will enable you to select a shared IP to be used and the SSL to be installed by our system, so using this function requires a maximum of 2 additional clicks after you fill the required information for the certificate.
