If you'd like to protect the information that visitors submit on your website, you need an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encrypt any data exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The present level of encryption makes it pretty much impossible to decrypt the real content, therefore if you have a login form of some kind or you offer goods and services online and clients submit credit card details, using an SSL certificate shall be an assurance that the info is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is needed to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter in case you run a small online shop, a non-profit organization or any other entity which doesn't make a big revenue, so to save you the money, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
