SSL, which is short for Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol which encrypts the info which users submit on a website. If they type in a username and a password on a login page or they buy services and products online and they input their credit card info, the data shall be exchanged with the web server in an encrypted form, consequently an unauthorized third-party will not be able to see it. An SSL certificate will heighten the protection of your site and shall make it more appealing to customers, but on top of the cost for the SSL, you must spend additional funds for a dedicated IP address, which is typically needed for the SSL installation. If you have a modest e-commerce portal and your budget is tight or you are a part of a non-profit organization and you could find far better use for the money, you could avoid the additional expense by taking advantage of our services due to the fact that our cloud website hosting platform supports SSL certificates not just on a dedicated IP address, but also on a shared one.
