Shared SSL IP
What's a shared SSL IP? How one can install an SSL certificate on this type of an IP?
If you'd like to protect the data which visitors submit on your site, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation is short for Secure Sockets Layer and this is a protocol employed to encrypt any data exchanged between a site and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized person intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the actual content, so if you have a login form of some type or you offer services and products online and customers submit credit card info, using an SSL certificate will be a guarantee that the info is protected. Typically 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 generate a big income, so to save you the cash, our cloud hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
