SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that encodes the information which clients submit on a website. If they enter a username and a password on a login page or they purchase services and goods online and they input their credit card info, the data will be exchanged with the server in an encrypted form, hence 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 need to spend more money for a dedicated IP address, that's usually needed 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 could find better use for the funds, you can avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not only on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
